Graduates of Camfed’s school programs in Africa form the Cama network, an alumni group that boasts more than 15,000 female members. The network of professionals–teachers, government officials, doctors–began as a way to connect women to job opportunities and skill-enhancing business workshops. Now Cama runs training programs for community health activists, and recently brought computers and the Internet to parts of Zambia.
