Join us

CAMFED (Campaign for Female Education) is a multi-award winning, international non-profit organization with a mission to multiply educational opportunities for girls and empower young women to step up as leaders in sub-Saharan Africa.

Through our peer support and leadership network, the CAMFED Association, women are leading action on the big challenges their communities face – from girls’ exclusion to climate change. This unique pan-African network of teachers, nurses, doctors, sustainable agriculture experts and entrepreneurs numbers is growing every year as more girls complete school and join them. Nicholas Kristof, writing in the New York Times, described CAMFED’s model as ‘a perpetual motion machine… a virtuous cycle that grows over time.

Join us and together with our CAMFED Association, trustees and partners, you can catalyze the power of the most vulnerable girls and young women to create the future they imagine — for themselves, for their communities, and for Africa.
