You Fund Her Future
Every Purchase Funds Grants for African Women!
At Global Girlfriend we believe passionately that education for girls, coupled with economic opportunities for women, are the keys to ending poverty for
women worldwide. You purchases at Global Girlfriend helps give twice. Not only is every item we sell made by women and fairly traded helping the
woman who made it; but each item you buy on our retail site also gives a charitable donation to Camfed (Campaign for Female Education in Africa). This
donation goes directly to Camfed's seed money small grants program, which provides women $100 grants to start small businesses.
Camfed's seed money micro-grant program is run by young women for young women, creating a bond of female solidarity that is integral to its success.
Young women in the seed money program receive an initial micro-grant, which they do not have to repay, in order to launch a small business venture,
benefiting themselves, their families, and their entire communities. Watch here to learn how small grants can change women's lives:
Since 1993, Camfed has fought poverty and AIDS by educating girls and empowering young women entrepreneurs. Camfed works directly with girls and women
in rural areas of Zimbabwe, Zambia, Ghana and Tanzania, providing educational and economic opportunities. More than 1,451,600 women and girls have
benefited from Camfed's innovative education and training programs.
