Whether you hold an event at school or work, take to the streets to run a marathon or fundraise with friends, there are lots of ways to get involved.

As well as paying school fees and other essentials, such as uniforms, books, and sanitary protection, your funds help beyond the classroom, supporting young graduates with the training and resources they need to become economically independent leaders in their communities.

What do CAMFED do?

CAMFED is a pan-African movement revolutionizing how girls’ education is delivered. Through a gold-standard system of accountability to the young people and communities it serves, CAMFED has created a model that radically improves girls’ prospects of becoming independent, influential women. CAMFED’s impact increases exponentially through the Association of young women educated with CAMFED’s support. Together, they multiply the number of girls in school and accelerate their path to livelihoods and leadership.

By supporting CAMFED we aim to add momentum to their ambitious goals of supporting 5 million girls across Ghana, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe to attend and thrive in school over the next 5 years.

For every girl you help to go to school, 3 more will follow

Multiplier effect

For every girl who receives support to go to school, three more will follow, and countless more will benefit.

Every graduate who joins our leadership network, on average, supports at least another three girls in turn. And she’ll go on to mentor and pass on her skills to many more, creating employment and opportunity, tackling inequality and injustice.

This is what we call the Multiplier Effect – the impact a girl’s education has on others’ lives, and on the health, wealth and equality of our world.
