Goals for Girls Leadership Summit 2018

22 January 2018

Girls helping girls through soccer, friendship and service

After successful summits in 2014, 2016 & 2017  the Goals for Girls team and staff came back for their fourth stint to New Delhi, India in 2018 with the same message and goal “Using the unique platform to help open the eyes of young women to the wide array of perspectives and challenges that exist outside their own small sphere and instil within them the knowledge that they have something powerful to offer the world.”

Each time the Goals for Girls crew visits India they bring along an amazing squad of young and energetic girls and a tireless bunch of hardworking staff members. However this time there was one very special person who was present within the G4G staff with us at the summit and that was no other than the all-star woman herself Lori Lindsey.

Having represented USA at the U-17, U-21 and the first team Lori was a very important guest at the event. Being a woman and having achieved so much in her career she was not only an example but a role model for many of the participating underprivileged girls in a country where a misogynistic society still exists.
