According to UNESCO estimates, 132 million girls between the age of 6 and 17 are out of school globally. 15 million girls of primary-school age will never enter a classroom. Half of those girls live in sub-Saharan Africa.
THE SCHOOL DAYS PROJECT
One trip to Africa for you, a year of school for her.
CAMFED (The Campaign for Female Education) is a pan-African movement revolutionising girl’s education. Having already supported more than 4.8 million girls to go to school across Ghana, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia & Zimbabwe, they are aiming to send a further 5 million girls to attend and thrive in school in the next 5 years.
Education changes everything.
CAMFED x BWW
BWW are proud to partner with CAMFED in supporting their ‘School Day Advocates’ program. Together we support marginalised girls in sub-saharan Africa to go to school, learn, thrive and lead change in their communities.
For every trip we sell to Africa we will support for a one year through the “School Day Advocates” program.
