Why Join the CAMFED Team?

CAMFED is an award winning, international non-profit organization working in Ghana, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe to support girls to access education and thrive in school and to enable young women to build livelihoods and lead change. Since our founding in 1993 we have supported over 4.8 million children to go to school and the 178,000 members of the CAMFED Association – young women educated with CAMFED’s support – are at the forefront of our work. Our model works, and we believe in what we do. If you want your work to make an impact on the world, join our team.
