Janet Anyango Motah

I got interested in MTG when I visited my cousin in Kilifi and felt  encouraged when I saw girls playing football and taking up leadership roles. I later registered and started playing football at Mnarani league field. The most intesting part is that I had never played football in my life and I was not used to seeing girls playing football for fun with commitment. I became a resource centre volunteer after the internship and enjoyed my time with the children, volunteers, staff members and the community who visited the resource centre to study and use the computers.Read more...

"I consider it divine for me to be working at MTG at this point in time. For a long time I have been in search for an entity that challenges gender stereotyping head-on, then one day I saw MTG while I was doing something else with a different category of women. I remember that I went asking anyone who cared to listen what they knew about MTG. Little did I know that 2 years later I would be here, doing what I like best and a bonus of being taught how to play professional football''.

In 2010 I started playing in MTG. I got more involved when I was trained as a peer educator and selected for the MTG United out of school team. In 2011 I became the Divisional Coordinator of Vitengeni. This year I moved to a new MTG area, Bamba. I think, MTG is doing a great job. MTG is really nurtering young girls in Kilifi County, who have already been disappointed. MTG gives them a place where they can find new opportunities. It is very interesting to work in a new MTG area. I can see how networking with different people can lead to development in the community.Read more...

Before I was employed in MTG I started as a player and a volunteer. The name of my team was Black Mamba. That was in 2004. Joining MTG was a turning point in my life. Before that, I used to be shy and I lacked confidence. MTG managed to build my life skills suchs as confidence, organizational skills, team work, communication skills and much more. This was possible through the opportunties MTG gave me such as playing football, conducting peer education sessions, officiating football matches, organizing and chairing committee meetings etc. MTG built my capacity also through trainings.Read more...

I joined in 2009. I was trained as a peer educator and a counselor and I have been an active volunteer. In that period I also tried to get more skills and knowledge. I have done computer packages and got my diploman in community development. Since this year I'm divisional coordinator in Ganze.  I like my job, although it is a bit challenging.  I work in the community, with the girls and there are also many administrative jobs that need to be done. But I have the right qualifications and I have the capacity. I like it that MTG gives girls information about reproductive health.Read more...

In 2010 I joined Moving the Goalposts as an out of school player. I like to play football. I'm fast and I have a lot of energy. Therefore in 2010 I was selected as a player for the MTG United Out of School team and as a coach. I have also been an MTG peer educator. I am now the receptionist. I like the job and I like the challenges that come with it. I believe that it are the challenges that build someone's personality. I like it that in MTG everybody works together. So it is also that together we enjoy the fruits and successes of MTG.Read more...


Fridah Kahindi

I got to know Moving the Goalposts in 2005, because my school participated in the MTG secondary school tournament. After finishing school I joined MTG as a volunteer in 2009. I was elected as a field leader. In that role I coordinated all the MTG activities in my field. Since I was no longer in school I was also available to be trained as a peer educator, a counselor, a coach and photographer. And yes, I have also been elected as the best player! I am working as a Divisional Coordinator in Vitengeni. I like the way MTG implements its activities.Read more...
