Together we can: CAMFED 2019 highlights
Celebrating CAMFED’s 25th Anniversary Year
This year, as we celebrated our 25th anniversary, you helped us to usher in a new era, with the young women educated through CAMFED’s support now spearheading our movement. Together, we’ve built a model for girls’ education like no other, led by women who know from personal experience what it takes to get girls into school, keep them there, help them to learn, support them to succeed, and unlock their power to lead.
Whether you are an individual supporter, a CAMFED champion and fundraiser, a member of our partner communities, a government official, a traditional leader, or working for the many institutions, trusts, foundations or corporate donors in our movement, please know that by supporting CAMFED, you are supporting a movement led by unrivalled experts: Almost 150,000 young women in the CAMFED Association (CAMA). Together we are reaching the most excluded girls, bridging the gaps between education, employment and enterprise, and taking the lead in climate-smart innovation. We are delighted to share just a few of our 2019 highlights with you.
Thank you! Together, we are shaking up the world!
