Camfed in the Guardian’s girls’ education podcast
In her latest podcast, the Guardian’s Global Development Editor, Lucy Lamble, investigates the barriers that keep girls around the world from accessing an education, and speaks to organizations which are providing a solution.
As part of her report, Lucy Lamble interviews Camfed’s patron Julia Gillard in her role as board chair of the Global Partnership for Education, ”moving the big levers of change.”
She speaks to Camfed Tanzania’s Nasikiwa Duke, Programme Manager for Young Women’s Empowerment, who explains how Camfed alumnae like Rehema work with schools and communities, taking responsibility for returning child brides to school.
Lucy also interviews Fiona Mavhinga, once supported in her education by Camfed, who now leads the development of Camfed’s CAMA alumnae network across sub-Saharan Africa. The leadership network is already over 55,000-strong, and a key partner in Camfed’s commitment to support one million girls to go to secondary school by 2020.
