Forca Goa Foundation heads to New York for Global Goals World Cup finals

Panaji, Sep 24 (UNI) Team Forca Goa are headed to New York to participate in the Global Goals World Cup Finals. The team which consists of team manager Ishita Godinho along with players Simone Lalwani, Avia Vas, YadnyaParwar, Valenie Fernandes, Sneha Fernandes and Joyvi Fernandes will be representing India at the prestigious event.
The Forca Goa Foundation team were crowned winners of the India leg of the tournament in Mumbai and got the opportunity to represent India in the finals. The Global Goals World Cup is an all-women’s competition held at the backdrop of the UN General Assembly week in New York City.
Jump Networks Limited (JUMPNET), a leading technology company, has come on board as the principal sponsor for the team. As a company that aligns with the Foundation’s mission and community based approach JUMPNET has made it possible for the girls from Goa to experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and represent the country.
The Global Goals World Cup events leverage the power of football to drive awareness around the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and empower young girls and women around the world to take action. The competition is not just about scoring goals in the game but also about how the SDGs are being actioned by the teams and their sponsors - reflecting the many ways we all can play for a better world.
The Forca Goa Foundation will be advocating three Sustainable Development Goals - good health and well-being (SDG 3), gender equality (SDG 5) and responsible consumption and production (SDG 12).
The Foundation is championing good health by organising football for thousands of children across the state who also participate in workshops on nutrition and mental health. The Foundation takes gender imbalance in the sport seriously and are taking steps through football festivals, women coaches who inspire young footballers and an exclusive U12 girls league.
The Foundation began its journey of focusing on responsible consumption by becoming the first organisation in the country to take the pledge to source Fairtrade Footballs. Through the Fairtrade certified footballs, the team, coaches and children are increasingly aware of the journey of the products that they consume.
Through this global tournament, the Foundation is raising awareness about these Sustainable Development Goals and hopes to gain support for its projects across the state.
