Goals 4 Girls (G4G’s) is a program school based initiative that focuses on empowerment through personal development, the Arts and recreational pursuits.   During the course the girls are provided with a variety of engaging learning opportunities that will equip them to make socially responsible decisions that enhance the quality and potential of their own and other people’s lives.
