The Campaign for Female Education (Camfed) works to solve long-term health, economic and social issues in rural Africa by educating girls and investing in their economic independence and leadership once they graduate. Educated women are three times less likely to get HIV/AIDS, earn 25 percent more income, and have smaller, healthier families. 1,065,710 children in some of the poorest regions of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana, Tanzania and Malawi have benefited from Camfed's education program.


Founded in 1945, CARE (www.care.org) is a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. CARE places special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help whole families and entire communities escape poverty. Women are at the heart of CARE's community-based efforts to improve education, health and economic opportunity in over seventy countries around the world.
