Camfed

About Me: 

Since 1993, Camfed (Campaign for female education) has educated girls and supported young women to help tackle poverty in rural communities.

More than 1,940,700 children in the poorest areas of Ghana, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe have benefited from our innovative education programs. Investing in girls and women is a proven way to improve the health and wealth of a whole nation.

In sub-Saharan Africa, 24 million girls can't afford to go to school. A girl may marry as young as 13 and has a one in 22 chance of dying in childbirth. One in six of her children will die before the age of five. Research shows if you educate a girl she’ll:

Earn up to 25% more and reinvest 90% in her family.
Be three times less likely to become HIV-positive.
Have fewer, healthier children who are 40% more likely to live past the age of five.
