The Guardian highlights CAMFED's vision for 2030

NewsPublished on:

In today’s article for the Guardian, Phillip Inman, economics editor of the Observer, reflects on the urgency of keeping girls in school as the cost of living crisis hits the most marginalized families hardest.

Phillip, who described CAMFED as one of the most important aid agencies of the moment during the COVID-19 pandemic in his 2021 article on girls’ education and vaccines, caught up with CAMFED’s CEO Angeline Murimirwa at the end of last week, while she was travelling and attending meetings in Malawi.

They discussed how girls’ education is often the first thing to be sacrificed in a crisis, in spite of being a fundamental right, unlocking a girl’s power to determine who she will become and what she will do with her life. Girls’ education has also been proven time and again to advance health, gender equality, social justice, economic development, and even our ability to tackle climate change.  

In his latest piece, Phillip describes CAMFED’s vision for 2030, and our global call to action.
