Read video transcript

Learner Guides are members of the CAMFED Association who elect to join our structured volunteer program, through which they receive financial and educational benefits in exchange for taking on the role of peer mentors in supporting the next generation of vulnerable girls and young women. Prisca Kilemile and Mchiwa Idd described for us how, in their role as Learner Guides in Tanzania, they are role models, decision-makers and community leaders.

The Learner Guide program is a mother, it is everything to me. It changed my life.

Prisca Kilemile, CAMFED Learner Guide

We were also joined by Diris Martin, Program Officer in Tanzania, who shared how our Learner Guide Program is designed to improve education outcomes among marginalized children, while simultaneously opening pathways for young women to transition from school to the workforce. Scaling the program is at the core of our ambitious plan to support five million girls to attend and thrive in school over the next five years.

This event took place on October 20, 2021 to an exclusive audience of CAMFED supporters.
