"Camfed launched in Zambia in 2001, and since then we have seen huge growth. In 2007, we were working in just ten districts. By 2017 we were working in 42 districts and in 1,138 partner schools. We are working with the government on gender equality and child protection, keeping girls in school and preventing child marriage. It’s so exciting to see Camfed graduates going back to their communities, getting jobs, and mentoring the next generation. These young women are teaching in schools, working as nurses in the clinics, and working as police women, proving that the work Camfed is doing is sustainable and benefiting whole communities for the long term. Our partners are seeing the impact. That’s the thing that I find most exciting. It really is life-transforming work!"
