The Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED) is tackling poverty and inequality by supporting girls to go to school and succeed, and empowering young women to step up as leaders of change. Our model tackles inequality and unlocks the benefits that accrue from girls' education, igniting a wider social movement in girls' communities. Since 1993, CAMFED's innovative education programs in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana, Tanzania and Malawi have directly supported more than 3.3 million students to attend primary and secondary school, and more than 5.7 million children have benefited from an improved learning environment. CAMA, the alumnae association for CAMFED graduates, is a powerful movement with over 138,000 members and is the largest network of its kind in Africa. CAMA is spurring remarkable change as young women from rural communities use their education to benefit others, and work to break the cycle of poverty for good.
