International Women's Day

Com atraso, porque o tempo é escasso e ando desencontrado das horas do movimento da Bancada, mas bem dentro do espírito de ajuda, fica aqui o meu apelo. Por favor façam a diferença.

Dear Dux,

Today, join us in celebrating the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day, which highlights women around the world who are achieving amazing things. In honor of this special day, I'd like to introduce you to one of them.

Penelope Machipi comes from a poor village in Zambia. By age 12, she had lost everything – her parents, her home, and her opportunity for an education. She was forced to drop out of school to help support her siblings.

But donors like you helped Penelope transform her life. She received a Camfed scholarship and graduated from high school. Today, she's an IT expert who teaches computer skills to girls and young women in her rural community.

“When we stand together, we can make a difference,” she says.

Penelope is making a difference not only as a role model and teacher. She's also a filmmaker, leading a group of women who make films about the most challenging issues in their community.

Today, we're proud to announce the premiere of their new film, “Hidden Truth.” An intimate portrayal of the effects of domestic violence on women and children in rural Zambia, the film is breaking silence within communities and sparking unprecedented dialogue for change. Watch an excerpt of the film here.

On this International Women's Day, let's stand together with Penelope and take action. As her story proves, when you educate a girl, you not only change her life, you change the lives of her family, her community and future generations.

Get involved by visiting www.camfed.org/intwomensday and sharing this email with friends and family.

Thank you so much for your support!

Warm regards,

Brooke Hutchison
Executive Director, Camfed USA
