Camfed Strategic Plan 2015-2019

Camfed has a unique opportunity to show the world the potential that can be unlocked through girls’ education and young women’s leadership – in individuals, in communities, and in economies. Together with the young women in CAMA, and donor partners across the world, we have set ourselves the ambitious goal of supporting one million adolescent girls through secondary school and into secure livelihoods within just five years, beginning in late 2014. Our strategic plan sets out how we will achieve this objective.
