watch the video to see why girls need an education

Wendy Werling and I were discussing ways to help with the education of girls in Africa and I'd like to share the website I found yesterday. There is a wonderful video about Ann Cotton and her organization (UK) called CAMFED. There is a branch in S.F., but mostly the organization is helping girls in Africa. Go to www.camfed.org and take a look at video, "Ann Cotton an uncommon hero educating girls in Africa". Skoll Foundation,org, is involved (good orgnaization for everyone). After watching the video I didn't know whether to cry and smile. It was wonderful.
Anybody have other suggestions that might give us some ideas for helping girls in Africa? Oh, CAMFED also educates about HIV/AIDS.

your comment about CAMFED

Thanks for your encouragement, Jenna. I am very passionate about helping children in Africa. Not only will my love help them, but the effort helps me too. Since returning from Liberia I try to conserve, and do without, so I can send money where it will be well used. What good work is available to us. How did you like the video about Ann Cotton's work?
peace,
William
