On July 31st, at its national leadership conference in Melbourne, Australia, beauty retailer and global beauty brand curator MECCA launched a partnership with the Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED) as part of a new phase of its MECCA M-Power initiative, which champions female education, independence and entrepreneurship locally and globally.
The partnership aims to support thousands more disadvantaged young women in rural Africa to go to school, learn, succeed, and become leaders and changemakers in their communities. In a video addressing the team at MECCA, CAMFED Patron Julia Gillard explained how.
The MECCA M-Power initiative was first launched in 2017, to support women and girls to flourish and realise their full potential. This year, CAMFED is delighted to team up with MECCA to support thousands of disadvantaged young women in rural Africa to go to school, learn, succeed, and become leaders and game changers in their communities. Through team workshops across Australia and New Zealand, MECCA’s more than 3,000 team members will learn more about this exciting new partnership, lending their passion and creativity to the collaboration.
