cornerstone of GOAL's humanitarian activities
What is GOAL?
GOAL is an international humanitarian agency dedicated to alleviating the suffering of the poorest of the poor. We are a non-denominational, non-governmental and non-political organisation.
GOAL was founded in Dublin in 1977 by former sports journalist and former Chief Executive, John O’Shea.
Since its inception, GOAL has spent in excess of €790 million on humanitarian programmes in more than 50 countries. Many thousands of staff, local and international, have worked for GOAL in the developing world, helping the organisation respond to every major humanitarian disaster since 1977.
Where are our operations?
GOAL is currently working in 14 countries: Ethiopia, Haiti, Honduras, India, Kenya, Malawi, Niger, Sierra Leone, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, Uganda, Zimbabwe and the Philippines.
GOAL staff deliver a wide range of humanitarian programmes across our fields of operation. Staff members come from many professional backgrounds: accountants, nurses, doctors, nutritionists, logisticians, engineers, administrative personnel, and so on.
