"Although it may seem like Ghana is doing well, if you scratch below the surface, there is a big gap between urban and rural, rich and poor. What Camfed Ghana is doing is building networks and relationships around the poorest, most marginalized girls – they are succeeding because they have all these people around them.
What motivates me to go to work every day is what will happen to these girls in the future. I can see the potential of every one of them, and there’s not one single girl who has ever disappointed me. The moment you invest your time and resources in a girl, you can see the change in her – in the way she talks, the way she walks, the way she thinks. And you can see the change in her community, as she and her sisters in the CAMA alumnae network support more girls as Learner Guides and role models."
