We see girls’ education as the starting point for social change.

Tackling the world’s biggest issues needs the resources, innovation and collaboration of the private sector. At CAMFED we build partnerships with companies that are purpose-driven, and looking for ways to engage their brand, employees and customers with scalable change.

Discover the benefits for your business and transform engagement with your CSR strategy when you join CAMFED’s network of partners who are supporting girls to complete school and become tomorrow’s entrepreneurs and leaders.


Strategic Partnerships

The challenges facing marginalized girls and young women in rural communities are growing fast, but in collaboration with strategic partners, so too are the opportunities to meet these challenges.

Working together we co-create unique opportunities that align your business objectives with your social mission to ensure we build sustainable, scalable solutions for the world’s most marginalized girls and young women.

Current partnerships

Here are some of our valuable partnerships with companies across the globe, supporting girls’ education and women’s empowerment.



Across Ghana and Malawi, our partnership with the Mastercard Foundation is creating transformational change for over 210,00 young people who benefit from school bursaries, financial literacy and entrepreneurship opportunities.



In partnership with MECCA M-Power, an Australian beauty brand, over 6,000 women and girls across Zambia and Zimbabwe are receiving education and support from our award winning Learner Guide program.



Support from Cummins means that 2,700 young women in rural Ghana and Zambia are learning how to fortify their businesses against economic upheaval, and receiving access to post-school career planning, business and life skills training, affordable finance, and apprenticeships.


Brand Partnerships

We collaborate with brands who share our values and want to develop innovative cause marketing campaigns that reach new audiences, build consumer engagement, and maximize impact.

Cause Marketing campaigns are a great way to connect customers to your business goals, share social impact and keep girls in school.

Brand partnerships

Employee Engagement

Pro Bono

From building IT infrastructure to governance reviews and program audits we work with global partners, visionary leaders, and a network of extraordinary individuals on pro bono projects that build organizational capacity and strengthen the impact of our award-winning model.



As our reach expanded across sub-Saharan Africa, we worked with Linklaters to document and share our approach to governance. The Linklaters team observed our governance model in action, investigated our approach and then articulated its principles into a report; Accounting to the Girl. 



As a key partner, Pearson developed BTEC resources for CAMFED Guides. The BTEC qualification is highly valuable to CAMFED Guides and forms part of a sustainable incentive package that supports learners and certifies their skills and experience. It also supports them to gain access to further education, employment, or entrepreneurship opportunities.
