Funding for schools and vulnerable children
A lack of books, pencils and other school equipment in rural schools leads to high rates of grade repetition and drop out.
Camfed resource grants help to provide books for classrooms and libraries, as well as teaching resources, such as stationery, chalk and blackboards. Learning resource grants can also go towards water, sanitation and hygiene programs in schools. Camfed’s health and hygiene training in schools, through young women in the CAMA network, complements these projects.
