- The GOAL is a Facebook program aimed at guiding and encouraging tribal girls from across India to become village-level digital young leaders for their communities
- The programme will help to connect underprivileged young tribal women with senior expert mentors in the areas of business, fashion and arts to learn digital and life skills.
- It will also provide economically and socially marginalized young women with the tools and guidance for the development of livelihood skills.
- It will help to close the digital gender gap by enabling more women to get online and access digital services.
