Short Biography: 

Unlike most of the MTG staff members, Janet Motah joined Moving The Goalposts not as player, but as an Intern in August 2011. After her course in Mass Communication she found out about the organization when she came to visit her cousin in Kilifi.  It was a turning point in her life.


My Story: 

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. I got more experience in working with the community and I can say that I  learnt how to work with  children through MTG. I have also  gained experience in many areas especially in monitoring and evaluation during my life as a volunteer.The organization has been a turning point in my life due to several trainings I underwent like video editing, child protection policy, Participatory Rural Approaches and report writing. I  also secured a job as the assistant monitoring and evaluation.

I like my job, especially writing the monthly newsletters, data collection and photography because I feel motivated when I hear girls' tell their stories on how their lives  changed through their involvement in MTG activities. I also feel good when my pictures are used in social media, print media and reports. I like the way MTG handles girls and how they are empowered without  discrimination. I wish MTG all the best and hope that it will extend to other counties to empower more girls in future.
