Características del proyecto

El proyecto Goles y Metas para las Chicas empezó en Mayo del 2006 cuando un grupo de padres que en la Villa de emergencia “31” decidieron invitar a voluntarios para comenzar un programa deportivo. Los padres decidieron movilizarse debido a la falta de actividades deportivas disponibles en su barrio para chicas adolescentes que enfrentaban varios peligros: drogas, prostitución y violencia. El deporte elegido fue el fútbol y el programa incorporó otras áreas para tratar las variadas preocupaciones, dudas y preguntas que suelen tener las niñas adolescentes.

El proyecto incluye hoy estos cuatro componentes: liderazgo, género, participación comunitaria y educación para la salud.

1. Liderazgo: Las adolescentes participan del programa aprendiendo a seguir las reglas establecidas por el grupo, materializadas en un código de conducta acordado. Asimismo, mediante el deporte se les posibilita desarrollar el potencial y las motivaciones que poseen.

2. Género: Debido al importante rol que cumple la mujer en la vida cotidiana del barrio creemos que las participantes crecerán con habilidades como lideres al participar en un equipo y al llevar una vida sana, así ayudando a crear familias más sólidas encabezadas por mujeres disciplinadas, hábiles y fuertes.

3. Participación comunitaria: Intentamos poner en práctica el comportamiento que las chicas quisieran ver para su vecindario y convertirse en modeles, ser un ejemplo para sus pares. Las chicas aprenden a comunicarse con otros vecinos para solicitar horarios de práctica en las canchas, salones comunitarios, hablar del proyecto con otras chicas interesadas así como también resolver los conflictos que puedan llegar a suceder en los distintos ámbitos donde interactúan socialmente. Creemos que al poner en práctica la resolución pacífica de conflictos se transmitirá los mismos conceptos más allá de la cancha para que las chicas implementen las mismas herramientas para sus vidas de interrelación.

4. Educación para la salud: Otorgar una difusión sistematizada de información esencial para mejorar la situación de sanitaria de las participantes. Colaboramos con otras organizaciones comunitarias para facilitar la información necesaria, por un medio accesible y en una forma adecuada y cómoda, en forma de charlas informales.

General Overview (English)

Since DR has been in charge of coordinating the program, Goles y Metas has incorporated different support systems and activities to help tend to the various worries, doubts, and questions that female adolescents usually have. Liliana Cura, a social psychologist, handles running such systems and activities.

The project is now composed of four components: leadership, gender awareness, community involvement, and health education.

1.    Leadership: The teenage girls participating in the program are required to follow the rules established by the group, as a code of conduct agreed upon. Furthermore, through the sports team, they have a chance to realize their full potential.

2.    Gender Awareness:  By taking part in a team,  we believe the partcipants can grow into gifted and independent woman, who will make better life choices and will achieve more fulfilling roles in their communities.

3.    Community Involvement: We try to put into practice the behavior the girls would like to see in their neighborhood, so that they will become models or examples for other young women.  They learn to communicate with neighbors and peers while requesting practice hours on the soccer field and by talking about the project with other girls who would like to join.  They also learn to resolve conflicts that may arise in their neighborhood where they socially interact on daily basis. We believe that by using peaceful conflict resolutions strategies, these same concepts will be utilized far behind the soccer field.

4.    Health Education: We give essential information to improve the sanitary situation of the participants. We collaborate with other organizations to facilitate the needed information.  Through informal talks and meetings, we are able to comfortably communicate the information to the girls.
