Moving the Goalposts believes that football has a unique power to unlock the potential of disadvantaged girls and young women. Moving the Goalposts is a sport for development organisation that harnesses the power of sport to overcome social obstacles girls and young women face in coastal Kenya; they create a safe space for girls and young women to understand their rights and claim them — take up leadership roles and have a voice in the society – or as they say “Tunaweza” (We can!).
Problem to be tackled
Moving the Goalposts is a movement for girls and young women to fight for their rights and push the boundaries on creating a more equitable society using football to teach lessons around sexual and reproductive health rights, child safeguarding and leadership in Kilifi County and other coastal Kenyan communities.
