Angeline Murimirwa Bio

Angeline Murimirwa (née Mugwendere) was one of the first secondary schoolgirls in Africa to receive support from the Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED). She is now CAMFED’s African executive director, overseeing their mission to secure every girl’s right to an education.Murimirwa understands from experience both the desire for education and the enormous hurdles girls face in securing their right to education. In a spirit of solidarity with those facing the same struggles she has overcome, Murimirwa became a key founding member of the CAMFED Association, CAMA, a powerful pan-African network of young educated women, which had grown to nearly 140,000 members by the end of 2018. CAMA members are united by a background of rural poverty and are stepping up as a new generation of leaders and entrepreneurs in their communities, as well as at the national and international level.Murimirwa served on the Board of the Zimbabwe National Youth Council and represented CAMFED on the Education Coordination Group and on the UNAIDS Gender Task Force. In 2006, she was awarded the Prize for Women’s Creativity in Rural Life by the Women’s World Summit Foundation in Switzerland.
