Unleashing the power of educated girls: 2017 highlights
In 2017, the Camfed community celebrated several incredible landmarks, demonstrating the power of educated girls: There are now 100,000 activists for girls’ education in the powerful CAMA (Camfed Alumnae Association) network, whose philanthropy is changing communities for good. Angeline Murimirwa, one of the first girls Camfed supported to go to school, and founding member of CAMA, this year became Camfed Executive Director - Africa. Those who once benefitted from our programs are now firmly in the driver’s seat - delivering with the expertise, insight and compassion that comes from lived experience.
This is what you have helped to unleash. We cannot thank you enough:
I first met Alice in Zambia in 2012 & we celebrated #IWD2017 together. She’s an amazing activist who was once at risk of becoming a child bride, now leading #GirlGuardians for @Camfed.
