Where we Work
In excess of 100 GOALies are currently employed by GOAL. They work alongside many thousands of local staff in the implementation of humanitarian programmes in 14 countries. GOALies include country directors, project managers, accountants, nurses, doctors, nutritionists, logisticians, administrative personnel and engineers.
GOAL’s programmes are specifically designed to assist the poorest of the poor and those suffering from the effects of war and/or natural disasters.
Project funding comes from a number of sources - national governments and international institutions, such as the European Union and the United Nations, and charitable trusts, foundations and from public donation.
Since its inception in 1977, GOAL has employed more than 2,300 GOALies and has spent in excess of €790 million on humanitarian programmes. This has been achieved on an exceptionally low administrative cost.
Besides implementing its own programmes, GOAL works with partner organisations and missionary groups who have similar objectives.
