“Lack of access to education is the single most important barrier to gender equality... A girl who is educated becomes a woman who is influential.”

– The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, speaking on International Women’s Day 2019


“We know that when women are empowered, they immeasurably improve the lives of everyone around them - their families, their communities, and their countries.”

– The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, speaking in June 2013

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 we serve, we have created a model that radically improves girls’ prospects of becoming independent, influential women. Our impact increases exponentially through the Association of young women educated with CAMFED’s support. Together, we multiply the number of girls in school and accelerate their path to livelihoods and leadership.

No better way to celebrate what really matters. Thank you to everyone who donated.

A message from Angie Murimirwa, CAMFED Executive Director - Africa.

Angie Murimirwa was one of the first young women supported through school by CAMFED. She is the founding member of the CAMFED Association, and now leads our girls’ education and women’s empowerment work across five African countries: Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania, Malawi and Ghana.

Thank you for standing with us!

Many of you supported CAMFED when the Sussex Squad called on the generosity of its members and followers during the #GlobalSussexBabyShower campaign. You honored The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’ commitment to community-led change and social justice, and celebrated the imminent arrival of baby Archie by donating to causes that The Duke and Duchess care deeply about.

We were thrilled to have been chosen to benefit from your generosity as the Sussex Squad celebrated Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s birthdays.

One of the great things about being fans of Harry and Meghan is never being at a loss for inspiration to celebrate them in purposeful and meaningful ways. Fundamental to their appeal is how earnestly they carry out their humanitarian work, serving and embracing young leaders around the world, who, as they flourish, make sure that no one in their communities is left behind.
