"CAMFED" -- Alvin Hall, a business and financial expert, is travelling the world helping social entrepreneurs -- Across Africa, millions of girls are denied a decent education. CAMFED aims to change that and break the cycle of poverty by paying for books & fees. The ongoing BBC World News series on social entrepreneurs, Alvin's Guide to Good Business, features Camfed this week. Led by 2005 Skoll social entrepreneur Ann Cotton, Camfed uses an innovative community-based approach to girls education, supporting girls from elementary school through to adulthood. Camfed is a great story of impact. Since 1993, Camfed has improved the school environment for over 1,065,000 children, provided scholarships for 42,000 girls to go to high school, trained over 4,000 teacher mentors and helped over 750 young women go to college. Graduates of the Camfed program are now becoming sponsors of the next generation of girls, creating a self-reinforcing mechanism that will only get stronger over time.
