Camfed is an international non-profit organisation tackling poverty and inequality by supporting marginalised girls to go to school and succeed, and by empowering young women to step up as leaders of change. In this briefing we showcase Camfed Tanzania’s pioneering collaboration with Worldreader, Kiva and the government of Tanzania that aims to extend rural girls’ access to education and to help young women to successfully navigate the difficult transition between school and adulthood. Camfed’s holistic and collaborative approach has been key to its success. Each collaboration brings something unique to the project: Camfed’s own community led model with Worldreader’s technology creates new ways of learning; collaboration with national and district education structures help to embed e-readers into the government English orientation programme; Kiva loans strengthen community engagement; and Learner Guides provide both a link to local communities as well as valuable learning support to teachers and students.
