Goal promotes a positive culture for girls where they can learn and play in a safe place. As such, it is critical that a code of conduct is set at the start of the programme and that all participants clearly understand what constitutes acceptable behaviour. Goal is an inclusive space, where everyone’s opinions and thoughts are equally valued, and discrimination, violence and aggressive behaviour are not tolerated.
In India, the first activity at every Goal site is to create a set of site rules and post them up at every session for everyone to read. All girls should participate in this process and therefore set their own guidelines for behaviour.
