About GOAL: GOAL is an international non-governmental, non-political, non-denominational relief and development organisation currently working in 12 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. Consistent with its global mission to serve the poorest, the most vulnerable, and those affected by humanitarian crises, GOAL has been working with communities in difficult circumstances to implement relief, rehabilitation and development programmes over the last 30 years.
With a focus in Africa where HIV&AIDS, corruption, gender inequalities and unmitigated poverty have continued to slow economic growth and development, GOAL is addressing the diverse and complex needs of the very poor and vulnerable individuals and communities that arise from social, economic, cultural and political exclusion.
This programme covered education, health, HIV& AIDS, child rescue, and rehabilitation and reintegration. It addressed the needs of vulnerable children in very poor communities in the Nairobi slums.
In 2006, in response to a drought, GOAL opened a rural water programme in the arid and marginal areas of Kitui and Mwingi Districts. In 2007, GOAL opened a slum upgrading programme for Nairobi’s informal settlements.
GOAL implements project activities under 5 key programme areas namely:
(i) Health (community health, HIV&AIDS, WASH, health systems strengthening),
(ii) Child Empowerment and Protection (Education, Protection and EVCY social economic support, institutional and policy strengthening),
(iii) Livelihoods (Food access and availability, income and institutional strengthening) and
