You Fund Her Future

Every Purchase Funds Grants for African Women!

camfed 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:
