Campaign for Female Education  We work to break the cycle of poverty and disease in rural Africa by educating girls and investing in economic and leadership opportunities.

At the start of #secondaryschool, Desderia had to walk three kilometers to school, often on an empty stomach. Her school attendance became erratic and after recognising the danger of her situation, a Teacher #Mentor, Agnes, organised Camfed support for Desderia and for her to stay in a school accommodation. She has flourished in her new environment and is now Head Girl of her school. #girlseducation

Dr. Runyararo Mano from Zimbabwe was the first Camfed alumna (CAMA member) to become a #doctor and is now a paediatrician. She has seen the impact of #poverty on #health and the ability of children to stay in school. She says that #communityengagement is key to improving both health and education. CAMA members deliver health and wellbeing sessions in their rural schools and communities in sub-Saharan Africa.

"CAMA members, who have the lived experience of marginalization, are challenging these inequalities within their communities." -Dolores Dickson, Executive Director, Camfed Canada.
Dolores takes the stage at #WISEAccra, to discuss the positive change enacted by CAMA's young women leaders who are tackling inequality through #qualityeducation.

“Disability should not be a barrier to #success!” -Primrose, CAMA Member and physiotherapist. Meet Primrose, one of the first girls supported by Camfed in Zimbabwe. She suffered severe burns as a young child, leaving her disabled. With determination and Camfed support, Primrose completed #school and became a physiotherapist to help others with disabilities.

Passionate #Teacher Mentors, like Prisca, provide social #support to vulnerable students at risk of dropping out. “You know, if you educate girls, you educate the whole nation and you reduce the poverty level in the country.” —Prisca

This week is international #GlobalAction Week for Education! We are so proud of our CAMA #leaders, like Esmie, who are drivers of #change in their communities. “Through education, I can support my family. Through education, I can support my community. Through education, I can change my country.” —Esmie.

We work with children living with #disabilities, like Sarah, in #Zimbabwe, providing expert assessment, assistive devices and rallying community support to continue to break down barriers to education.
