Camfed USA is an organization that helps African girls receive an education. Education is key to stopping the spread of disease such as HIV/AIDS and discontinuing the horrible cycle of poverty. Education gives people hope for a better future, and the skills they need to make dreams into reality. Highly rated by Charity Navigator, your donation is used correctly. You can choose to donate to a specific fund such as elementary education, secondary education, business training, etc. or a general fund where need is the greatest. They have inspiring stories on their website about the girls who have benefitted from Camfed's work and your donations. It's incredibly moving and it inspires me to spread the word about this wonderful organization.
