First of all, thank you to everyone who participated in the annual GOAL Jersey Day!
Here is some information on Goal Jersey Day……
GOAL is an international humanitarian agency dedicated to alleviating the suffering of the poorest of the poor.
GOAL was founded in Dublin in 1977 by former sports journalist and former Chief Executive, John O’Shea.
GOAL currently has in excess of 100 GOALies based in 13 countries: Ethiopia, Haiti, Honduras, India, Kenya, Malawi, Niger, Sierra Leone, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
Across GOAL’s fields of operation, thousands of locally-based staff are employed alongside the GOALies, where together they deliver on a range of humanitarian programmes. GOALies come from all walks of life: accountants, nurses, doctors, nutritionists, logisticians, engineers, administrative personnel, and so on.
