Since 2002, girls are playing football in MTG. As Mr. Mbaji, one of the first teachers who embraced the concept of girls' football and MTG said in 2011: 'When I met Sarah Forde, the founder of MTG at an educational meeting in 2001, there was no football for girls. People disapproved it: girls raising up their legs..? That was not done.'

About MTG

Girls and women in Kilifi District, Kenya are some of the world’s poorest and most disadvantaged people. Low retention in school, early and unintended pregnancies and vulnerability to HIV/AIDS trap them in a cycle of poverty. Moving the Goalposts Kilifi (MTG) uses football to empower girls and young women, helping them to fulfill their potential both on and off the football field.
