At an event with high-profile CAMFED champions and supporters, CAMFED - celebrating 3 decades of impact - shared its audacious vision to support millions more girls to thrive in school and become game changers in their communities and beyond
CAMFED stepped in with the necessary financial and social support to allow me to complete my education. Soon after graduating into the CAMFED Association, I began training to become a Learner Guide. As a Learner Guide, I acted as a ‘big sister’ and a relatable role model, who could protect children, particularly girls, in my community from being pushed out of school by their circumstances. Through the program, I gained access to financial training and an interest-free loan to start a home furnishing business. With the profits I am able to sustain my family and support five children in my community.
