We are building a hostel for girls to reduce long, unsafe walks many make to reach school every day. This hostel will provide girls with a safe living environment and help them succeed in school.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In a context where 24 million girls can't afford to go to school, Camfed provides full scholarships for young women to stay in school- empowering them to be leaders of change in their communities. Included in this package, for girls who live a long way from the school, and whose safety and concentration in class are compromised by lengthy daily journeys, Camfed also provides safe housing. In order to support 30 girls through school, we're continuing the construction of a new hostel in Zimbabwe.

How will this project solve this problem?

The Nyangani hostel will allow these young women to focus on their secondary education and their future. Your support will help supply the plumbing, plaster, flooring, electricity and labor for the final construction of this hostel.

Potential Long Term Impact

Your support will not only transform the lives of these 30 girls, but by securing their education, you enable them in turn to become empowered leaders. Their education and motivation will inspire them to support other young women in their community.
