Hmm. I had promised myself I'd update this blog once a week and failed to do so in only the second week. Not a good start, but I had an excuse. Kenya's minister of gender was coming to Moving the Goalposts as the guest of honour at our championship finals and to launch my book, Playing by Their Rules, available at http://www.createspace.com/3376110.
Welcome to the new MTG website! We hope you like the changes and find lots of interesting and useful information. Please take some time to check out the videos we've posted on the media page, keep your diary up to date with our new online calendar, read current MTG news and get some insight into the minds behind the organisation on the blogs page.
Hey, welcome to our first blog. While others are twittering and whatever else the next craze is/will be we're slowly catching up... but let me tell you this blog will be worth waiting for. I'll be writing weekly (some of us have work to do) to give updates on MTG and in particular on the sanitary pads social enterprise plans.
Moving the Goalposts - a girls' football and development organization in coast province - is going to the World Cup in South Africa 2010. Moving the Goalposts (MTG) will participate in the Football for Hope Festival to be played in Alexandra, Johannesburg during the last week of the World Cup.
215 girls' teams are playing their league matches at 33 fields in Kilifi, Kaloleni and Ganze district. There are three categories: under 10 years, under 13 years and the open age category. The leagues are organized and managed by field committees composed of players and girls who are trained by MTG as referees, first aiders, peer educators, counselors, coaches or field leaders. The matches are usually played on Saturdays. After the matches there is peer education and counselors are available to talk with the girls.
