CAMFED as an organization has literally ‘grown up’ with the first cohorts of girls who received support, and who are now at the forefront of CAMFED’s leadership. They are the experts in determining the most successful strategies to improve education and economic opportunity for young people in marginalized rural areas. These experts are united in the CAMFED Association, the network of women leaders educated with CAMFED support, founded in 1998. Together, they have inspired a new wave of support for girls’ education in their communities.
CAMFED as an organization has remained relatively small – as it is the power of the CAMFED Association, CAMFED's community Champions, and its networks, underpinned by systems of accountability that are in turn enabled by technology, that provide a true model for sustainable scale.
