“Education helps you learn, and makes your future bright. Without CAMFED, I would not be in school.”
When Grace is not in class or studying at home, she plays soccer and netball, and she loves to sing in her church choir. On Saturdays, she helps her family by working all day with her aunt selling rice and vegetables at the local market. But school is her focus, having seen many other girls in her community drop out and get married at a young age. Many others are kept home by their families to work, care for younger siblings, and contribute to their family’s needs.
But Grace's story doesn’t end there. Just as Grace completes her secondary education, she will join the CAMFED Association (CAMA) - the network of female leaders educated with CAMFED support - who will support Grace on her journey to independence.
