CAMFED (the Campaign for Female Education) tackles poverty and inequality by supporting girls to go to school and succeed. Camfed works in partnership with governments and communities, investing in girls and women in the poorest rural districts in sub-Saharan Africa. CAMFED not only supports them through school, but also on to new lives as entrepreneurs and community leaders. More than 2.6 million children in sub-Saharan Africa have been supported to go to school to date.
We like this organization because of its strong alumnae network which supports girls like a family as they pursue their educational journey.
