This 3-minute-long video contains the highlights from the African Voices Changemakers special about Angeline (Angie) Murimirwa, CAMFED’s Executive Director – Africa.
The CAMFED Association of women leaders educated with CAMED support now numbers more than 29,000 in Malawi, and nearly 208,000 across five African countries. The CNN team met CAMFED Association entrepreneur Charity, who runs a tailoring shop, and mentors young girls in her community. They met Learner Guide Idess, who keeps girls in school and out of child marriage, and visited her farm, discussing the impact of climate change. Some of the young women met Angie for the first time during this visit captured by CNN. They highlighted how much she—a founding member of our peer-support network—means to them as a big sister, mentor, and role model who has also overcome the odds to complete education, and become independent and influential.
