STUDENT ACTION FOR FEMALE EDUCATION IN AFRICA
About the Project
With this project, we aim to promote female education in rural parts of Africa by supporting the work of an NGO called CAMFED. We plan to raise money for CAMFED through fundraising events, such as screening CAMFED films/documentaries, partnering with local businesses to create and sell products, coinciding with CAMFED appeals (International Women's Day) and other established Cambridge events such as Pink Week. We also plan to raise awareness through speaker events, writing articles and circulating posts/infographics via social media. Another goal is to build relationships with CAMFED schools, creating a pen-pal scheme and sending motivational letters to fellow students in the schools with which CAMFED work. We also aim to liaise with various other societies and organisations to promote CAMFED, encouraging partnerships between people who have the same goals.
