Local GGWCup organizers
Everywhere we bring the GGWCup we always start by creating strong partnership with local partners and organizers. They are the key to a succesful GGWCup.
Through the years, an amazing group of organizsers have contributed to the many GGWCups around the world. Some local organizing partners are players, others are organisations introduced to GGWCup by their network or vice versa. No matter the size of our local organizers, we always aim to build a unique and successful GGWCup within a budget that balance ambitions and opportunities.
Many will bring the GGWCup and the Global Goals back to their homefield year after year. It is an honor to introduce …

The Soccer Divas Club
Mariam Mumbassa (Captain, Soccer Divas) is the founder of the Soccer Divas Club in Mombasa, Kenya, and have played in a GGWCup twice: GGWCup Nairobi 2017 and GGWCup Johannesburg 2018.
“One other memorable moment was taking an eight hour bus ride all the way from Mombasa to Nairobi we giggled and laughed like little girls all the way. It was so refreshing for all of us. When we arrived in Nairobi, the best part was meeting all the other 27 teams advocating for the different goals. There were so many young girls and women all pursuing common global goals. Taking part in the ggwcup also gave our youngest player the zeal to master all the 17 global goals. The experience has indeed been priceless. We continue to deliberately look for ways in which we can speak about these global goals. We have become global goals ambassadors without knowing it.”

In 2019 Mariam will take the lead to bring GGWCup to Mombasa and build the first GGWCup East Africa.
17GoalsAfrica is an organisation set up to inspire, engage and empower everyone to support the realization of SDGs in Nigeria, and by extension, Africa.
Part of its objectives is to build and manage an impactful platform, using sports, entertainment, media, technology, events and other identified creative and effective tools, to drive the awareness and advancement of SDGs.
As noted in the design of our performance measurement framework, the level of participation and involvement of females in our activities towards achieving our goals is key. We want women, ladies and girls to share in the joy that comes with advancing the global goals and also use their influence to carry the male folks along.
And what a time to tap into the opportunity provided by the Global Goals World Cup! It's excitement unspeakable, a dream come true and a challenge worth facing!
We are ready!!!
