All our operational functions are carried out in partnership and close coordination with the young women and communities we serve.
CAMFED’s Operations are not separate from — but rather tightly integrated with — the communities we serve.
CAMFED’s work in our partner communities is driven by local committees that comprise members of the CAMFED Association, and CAMFED Champions, including teachers, parents, traditional leaders and local government officials, all of whom volunteer their time and expertise to ensuring that more girls complete school.
They are supported by CAMFED Operations in national and district offices across Ghana, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe, staffed entirely by nationals of those countries. Additional back office support is provided by small teams in the United Kingdom, United States and Canada.
Our tight integration is represented by the overlap in our operating model’s circles, indicating that many staff members employed in our district and national offices – and some in international offices – are also members of the CAMFED Association or part of our CAMFED Champions.
