Watch Devex conversation #1 - the power of girls' education

The first conversation in the online series hosted by the Hilton Foundation and Devex under the theme “The Future of Humanitarian Action: The Power of Communities” explores the power of communities coming together to create the social, physical and financial support structures to keep girls in school, and ensure that young women have the peer support to flourish, grow their leadership potential, and  actively contribute to their nations’ economic, social and political development. Drawing on deep expertise, lived experience, local and global perspectives, we also discuss what must be done to scale the impact of organizations like CAMFED, and reach even more girls during this critical period, when COVID-19 and climate change threaten to roll back decades of progress.

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.
