Our Learner Guides use their unique understanding and the trust they have earned to work with rural schools, communities and district governments to keep vulnerable girls safe and learning.
CAMFED Learner Guides are:
…“big sisters,” friends, and relatable role models for vulnerable girls – their successes and status show girls a future full of possibility if they stay in school and concentrate on their studies.
…“first responders,” noticing if a girl’s attendance becomes erratic, and following up with children displaying early warning signs before they drop out of school.
…voices for “invisible” children, who may never have made it into the school system in the first place. Learner Guides work with others to help girls overcome the challenges that keep them out of school.
