In 1991, Ann Cotton visited Zimbabwe to investigate why girls’ school enrollment in rural areas was so low. What she found surprised her. Contrary to the common assumption that families weren’t sending girls to school for cultural reasons, Ann discovered poverty was the main roadblock. Families couldn’t afford to buy books or pay school fees for all their children, so they had to choose who would receive an education. Girls were rarely chosen. The reason was simple: boys had a better chance of getting a paid job after graduation.

She returned home to Cambridge, England, determined to find a way to help girls go to school in Zimbabwe.

In 1993, Ann formally launched Camfed, the Campaign for Female Education.
