Watch Devex conversation #3: Girls' education and climate resilience

Girls from marginalized communities suffer most when disaster strikes, and are the first to be pushed out of school as the climate crisis deepens. Yet investing in girls’ education not only raises awareness and preparedness,  it can deliver the leadership communities need to build resilience and demand climate justice.

We are thrilled that CAMFED has been awarded the 2021 Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize, the world’s largest annual humanitarian award presented to a nonprofit in recognition of extraordinary contributions toward alleviating human suffering.



Looking at girls’ education through a different lens

In their Opinion piece on Devex, CAMFED Co-Executives Angeline Murimirwa and Lucy Lake urge the global education community to tackle the fundamental, structural inequalities that are at the root of the problems that perpetuate girls’ and women’s marginalization. Their article follows the announcement that CAMFED was honored with the 2021 Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize, which in turn is resulting in a number of high profile media opportunities for the young women leaders in our CAMFED Association, working every day to change the status quo for girls for good.
