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.
