Goleadoras is a purpose driven social enterprise leveraging the power of fútbol to transform the self-confidence, sense of solidarity, ambition, perseverance and well-being of girls and women. The Goleadoras Project grows out of a ten-year-old US-based not-for-profit foundation Proyecto Paz, an organization dedicated to bringing soccer to underprivileged communities with the support of donors such as Corporacion Andina de Fomento, Direct TV, Tag Heuer, MTV and allies like the United Nations, Unidos en Red, Peace One Day.

The founding board of directors at Goleadoras include Jules Green, Microsoft's top woman executive until the Fall of 2017 and the executive who led the creation of Windows 7; Carmen Busquets, a pioneer in the effort to transform fashion retailing through technology at companies such as Net-A- Porter, where she was the founding investor; and Mireya Cisneros, a leading Latin American philanthropist who has supported causes throughout the region. Goleadoras founder Eglantina Zingg leads the organization's fundraising and institutional alliances with Fortune 500 companies, multilateral organizations, and some of the world's most important philanthropists and political leaders.
