Joining a global call to action to help educate and empower adolescent girls
Obama Foundation Girls Opportunity Alliance names CAMFED as "Get Her There" campaign partner
Today, Michelle Obama’s Girls Opportunity Alliance announced CAMFED as one of its non-profit collaborators on a new initiative, Get Her There, a global call to action to help educate and empower adolescent girls around the world to reach their full potential.
The campaign brings together a diverse group of everyday people, corporations, industry leaders, nonprofits, and valuable stakeholders to support hundreds of community-led organizations worldwide, reaching thousands of adolescent girls.
CAMFED has been a Girls Opportunity Alliance featured organization since its inception four years ago. Fiona Mavhinga from Zimbabwe and Memory Mumbi from Zambia joined Michelle Obama at the Obama Foundation Summit in 2017 (See photo at top of page – credit: The Obama Foundation), and were excited to support the launch of the Alliance, a program of the Obama Foundation, on Day of the Girl in 2018.
