For millions of girls across Africa, a decent education is beyond reach. CAMFED, an international nongovernmental, nonprofit organization founded in 1993, aims to change that by paying for books, fees, even school uniforms-and in the process, break the cycle of poverty. The charity has developed a model for supporting girls to go to school, start businesses, and return to their communities as leaders. Alvin Hall, who also transcended poverty through educational scholarships, wants to help the CAMFED girls broaden their horizons and raise their expectations even higher. This program follows his interaction with the group in Zambia and its response to his inspiring influence.
