THE STORY:

CAMFED U S A FOUNDATION wrote -

Camfed (Campaign for Female Education) is an international nonprofit organization that invests in the education of girls through secondary school and then supports them to become entrepreneurs and leaders.

Since 1993, more than 3 million students have benefited from Camfed’s innovative education programs in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana, Tanzania and Malawi. 

Now, Camfed is answering the Skoll Social Entrepreneurship Challenge with a goal to support 100 girls to complete one year of high school at a cost of $300 per student. The $30,000 in scholarships will help girls in Zambia. 

The funds are desperately needed. Across Sub-Saharan Africa, 30 million girls face barriers that prevent them from attending school. Without access to education, these young women face a life with limited financial opportunities and little or no support.

Camfed works to break this cycle of poverty and transform it into a cycle of success, where educated young women grow to become business and community leaders. As Cama alumnae, they return to school to help educate new generations of young students and promote continuous growth.

Camfed is empowering girls and young women to become leaders of change. But we need your help to do it.

Every dollar counts - here is how your contributions can support comprehensive scholarships for 100 girls:

  • $10 provides a year's worth of paper, pens and pencils
  • $25 buys a pair of sturdy school shoes
  • $40 gives a uniform to keep a girl in school
  • $150 supports 6 months of high school
  • $300 supports a year of high school 

Please donate today to support 100 girls in school and on into a life of leadership!
