Watch Winnie and Linda in conversation about the power of education

2023 marks the fifth year that International Day of Education (January 24th) has been celebrated across the globe. After three decades of supporting girls learn, thrive and lead, CAMFED’s pan-African movement provides living proof of this year’s theme: “to invest in people, prioritize education.”

As educated women leaders, we are fulfilling our potential and paying forward the support that enabled us to stay in school and build our dreams after graduation. 

Education makes dreams real because it gives you the platform to be who you really want to be.

Winnie, founding CAMFED Association member, Zimbabwe
