This International Women’s Day, join our #WeAreGameChangers campaign and watch our sisters on TV and international panels as we embrace equity and act and advocate for girls’ education and women’s leadership in our communities and our professions.


We Are Game Changers! Are You?

Girls educated with CAMFED support become leaders in our Sisterhood of game changers – the CAMFED Association.

We’re here to support each other on the journey to independence and influence, and in turn send more girls to school.

More importantly, we’re shifting  mindsets, and changing the narrative for women in all walks of life!

Does that sound like you, or someone you know?  Go to our campaign page to learn more.
