“If we care about climate change, if we care about poverty, if we care about maternal-child health, then we have to care about education.”

Hi, I’m Angie Murimirwa, and this is how it all started 30 years ago…

Angeline Murimirwa, Executive Director – Africa

I was one of the first young women to receive support from CAMFED (the Campaign for Female Education) to go to school. Today, I am a founding member of our “Global Sisterhood,” a powerful pan-African network of women leaders educated with CAMFED support, who then go on to support other girls through school, so that together we can break the cycles of poverty, gender inequality and child marriage.

We are thrilled to take what we’ve learned over the years, and share it with you, and our sisters around the world.

While you may not face all the challenges we do, we can all be certain that when girls and women are educated to lift up other women, everything changes.

CAMFED has ensured that over 5.5 million children in some of Africa’s poorest communities attend school – helping girls side-step the dangers that come from child marriage and childbirth, and instead rise up as leaders in their communities, tackling everything from hunger to inequality. Our sisterhood today is 254,000 strong — we are the guiding lights to the next generation of girls.

Our Sisterhood works, and keeps growing as more young women join us. This is my inspiration, every day! We are grateful for the opportunity to welcome you in, learn from each other, and share stories about the ripple effect of educating one girl, who then educates many more.

Pamoja Tunaweza! (That’s Swahili for “Together We Can!”),

About CAMFED, the organization behind The Sisterhood of Change

This world is going in the wrong direction fast, and we are left feeling hopeless in our ability to reverse so many of the dangerous trajectories, from global warming, to food insecurity, to violence against women, to social injustice.

You may be surprised to learn that educating the most vulnerable girls in Africa not only delivers justice, but also women leaders who can “be the change.”

More than ever, we need these community organizers and leaders if we want to tackle our world’s biggest problems.

CAMFED (the Campaign for Female Education) was founded in 1993 because a small group of people believed in the power of young women to be the change.

Through their refreshing model, which gives young women a hand up instead of a handout, they’ve created a powerful model of change through their “Global Sisterhood of Change Leaders.”

Today at more than 254,000 young women strong, the Global Sisterhood ignites the Multiplier Effect of girls’ education: bringing vulnerable girls into school and supporting them to become independent, influential leaders in their communities, in turn supporting many more girls.

The result? Young women gain the tools, the status and the confidence to be part of the solution, helping to tackle climate change, reduce gender-based violence and inequality, increase global food security, and advance economic justice for some of the most disadvantaged people in the world.

Thank you for igniting the potential of women worldwide to be the change the world so desperately needs.
