Double your donation to Camfed with UK Aid Match

Too often, poverty decides girls’ futures. Let’s change that! Leading the way are Camfed’s GirlGuardians, young women who are equipped with the tools and skills they need to tackle child marriage in their communities. Each GirlGuardian you support will protect 80 girls at risk of becoming child brides.

Go to Camfed.org/UnlockFutures to follow the stories of girls whose lives are being transformed every day with your help.

By donating, you will be doing something amazing for vulnerable girls across Africa. But not only that – if you donate via my sponsorship page, I will run 1km per £1. Let’s set me a challenge!
