Education is a human right...

...not a privilege. But in many parts of rural Africa families cannot afford the cost of high school. Will you "pass your cap" and support a girl to stay in school for another year?

Pass the cap - Support a girl to graduate

Education is not freely available to everyone - and in many parts of the world girls are the first to be excluded from it. Girls are the first to drop out of school, and the first to be failed by the system, facing the perils of early marriage, early pregnancy and HIV/AIDS. In sub-Saharan Africa, 52.2 million girl are out of school. 

Poverty is the greatest barrier to accessing an education – overcoming this barrier by investing in girls and women is a proven way to improve the health and wealth of entire nations. With access to education, they can do amazing things: launch businesses, become health workers, run schools, and lead governments, making the world a better place for everyone.

Our alumnae across Africa are passing their caps to girls in their community so more can benefit from an education, and the endless possibilities it opens up.

But they can’t do it alone - with your help we can reach even more vulnerable girls.

CAMFED alumna Issah from Ghana says: “We feel that if we help her today, tomorrow she will be able to help someone [else], and that is how the world will change.”
