Educate girls in Africa

The Campaign for Female Education is an international non-profit organization tackling poverty and inequality by supporting marginalized girls to go to school and succeed, and empowering young women to step up as leaders of change.

In sub-Saharan Africa, 28 million girls can't afford to go to school. Poverty is the greatest barrier to accessing an education – overcoming this barrier by investing in girls and women is the proven way to improve the health and economies of whole nations. When you educate a girl, everything changes. She will:

 

• Earn up to 25% more for each year of secondary school

• Be 3 times less likely to contract HIV

• Re-invest 90% of her earnings in her family

• Marry later and have a smaller, healthier family

 

Since 1993, Camfed has directly supported over 1.4 million children to go to school, and improved learning environments for more than 3 million children through community-led education programs in Ghana, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
