Video: The Power of Learner Guides

Read video transcript

In some parts of rural Africa, poverty forces girls into child marriage. Locked in a cycle of poverty and hopelessness, they face grave risks: HIV/AIDS, domestic abuse, and even death during childbirth. Without education or employment, the future will remain locked for generations of girls.

There is hope – school. By staying in school, a girl can avoid child marriage and pregnancy. CAMFED trains Learner Guides — young women who were once at risk of becoming child brides themselves — to support girls in schools and in their communities, unlocking opportunities to escape poverty.

Your support of these girls is needed now more than ever. Learn more.
