Over 200 girls took part at the launch of ‘Live Your Goals’ in Papua New Guinea in July at the Sir John Guise Stadium in Port Moresby. The programme will target young girls in the country to play football, but also promote and empower then to become active participants in society.
Papua New Guinea joins 72 other FIFA member associations who are implementing Live Your Goals across the globe. During 2016, Live Your Goals will be rolled out in Port Moresby, Lae, Goroka and Buka. Five more events are planned throughout the year. The event coincided with the Host City Governor Powes Parkop’s popular health initiative the ‘Walk for Life’ programme, which attracted thousands of city residents.
