  • Mission: Camfed is dedicated to fighting poverty and HIV/AIDS in rural Africa by educating girls and investing in their economic independence and leadership once they complete school. Since 1993, Camfed has been working in partnership with rural communities in Africa to set in motion a virtuous cycle of change.
  • Description: Camfed focuses on rural areas of Africa in poverty to educate girls and women who would otherwise be unable to receive schooling. This not only helps the individuals but also drives social and economic development. Camfed unlocks the resources to change in each community through alumni and creating safe and productive environments for these women.
