Charity Support for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is recognized with a prestigious award at a “critical” time.
MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s favorite African charity has received essential cash to help them continue their educational work.
The Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED) and the uplifting and crucial work they do in Africa have long been supported by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. CAMFED has been earned $2.5 million in funding from the Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize to help them continue their goal of empowering young women and eradicating poverty in Africa via girls’ education. Their charity partner was recently given a $2.5 million prize, allowing them to extend their work in the region.
The goal of the organization is to “put girls’ education back on the agenda at a vital time,” and they assist young girls in the third-world countries in getting started and staying in school.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex matched a $130,000 donation to the Campaign for Female Education in September of last year.
When their second child, Lilibet Diana, was born in June, the parents asked friends and family to give to CAMFED instead of giving gifts.
Executive Director Angie Murimirwa feels that the royal couple’s assistance will benefit the young ladies they serve in the long run since they share CAMFED’s objective of “helping and progressing young people” and “raising voices for those on the edges.”
“I feel this is something we’ll be doing with [Harry and Meghan] for a very long time,” she remarked. I’m confident that as long as these girls are out of school and the young need a boost, we’ll continue doing this together in the future.”
Meghan and Harry, as well as the Campaign for Female Education, are working to “support people with dignity and pride and allow them to speak for themselves,” she said.
CAMFED will get the funding online on October 13, a date that its executive director described as “important.”
She also stated that “one of the worst things the pandemic has done is exacerbate inequality and unfairness across communities.”
“We are really pleased because there are now additional resources for us to be able to accomplish what we’ve always done and to be able to get more scale and help more learners,” Ms Murimirwa told PEOPLE magazine.
She said it again, Harry and. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
