Our Governance

GOAL USA is committed to maintaining the highest levels of good governance across our organization and in our humanitarian programs. We prioritize accountability with all our stakeholders, particularly the communities, donors, and partners that we work with.

Workplace integrity

Authentic workplace integrity - where a strong moral character lies at the core - is by definition a whole and ongoing organizational effort. It goes beyond transparency and accountability and includes compliance with the law and organizational standards, as well as with universal ethical principles, i.e. respect, fairness and honesty and applying these ethical norms in our professional context.

GOAL has a range of policies, procedures and systems that comprise our Workplace Integrity Framework and compliment and support our cultural commitment to accountability and integrity. The framework incorporates core policies including the Code of Conduct, Child Protection Policy, Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse Policy, Whistleblowing Policy, Anti-Fraud Policy, Conflict of Interest Policy and internal controls and management systems that which empower and guide all internal stakeholders.

GOAL USA 2021 Year in Review

2021 was a year of progress and impact for GOAL

2021 was the final year of GOAL's three year organisational strategy - Alliance, Ambition, Action. It was a year of significant progress organisationally and programmatically. It was also another year disrupted by Covid-19 globally. GOAL teams continued to adapt their way of working to respond to the pandemic while continuing to support beneficiaries with life saving support and long-term development programmes.

Our humanitarian and development programmes reached 18.5 million people worldwide, across Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. The range of interventions is myriad and the challenges faced complex, but the common threads across all of our work is a deep rooted dedication to supporting vulnerable communities by GOAL teams who are courageous, compassionate and committed.

This impact is only possible through the ongoing relationships with our supporters, donors and partners around the world who are similarly dedicated to a vision of a world free of poverty, crisis and inequality.
