Empowering Girls in Africa by Pearson

Since 2013, Pearson has partnered with international NGO CAMFED (Campaign for Female Education) on a project funded by the UK Department for International Development’s (DFID) Girls’ Education Challenge, and supported by relevant national Ministries of Education, to help girls from low-income communities in sub-Saharan Africa stay in school, learn, and develop key skills for life and work. The partnership developed relevant learning resources and a professional development program that helps young women train to become mentors, or ‘Learner Guides’, who teach a curriculum we co-developed with vulnerable children in rural schools.
