Your gift can transform a girl’s life
The Holiday Impact Prize will support CAMFED’s work to educate 5 million girls by 2025, providing a crucial combination of financial, social and peer support for them to attend school and thrive – all led by young women who have lived and overcome poverty and exclusion themselves.
$150 can support a girl in high school for a year, including dedicated mentorship from a young woman trained to help improve her confidence, life skills and learning.
In her conversation with Nick Kristof, Angeline emphasizes that no donation is too small. The lack of something as small as a pen or a notebook can keep a girl out of school. Educating girls is a collective effort, multiplied by CAMFED’s young women leaders.
