Fiona Mavhinga serves as the Executive Advisor for CAMFED Association and was one of the first young women to complete her education with support from CAMFED, an organization that is supporting girls to learn, thrive and lead change. Fiona is a lawyer and leads on the strategic development of the CAMFED Association, the Association founded by former CAMFED clients who organize and act on behalf of girls and young women and contribute to their communities. Growing up in Zimbabwe, Fiona experienced first-hand the vulnerability of young women who manage to complete secondary school–with no resources and no employment opportunities available in rural areas–which she overcame to become a key founder of the CAMFED Association. Organized into elected committees from district to national level, the Association provides a robust mechanism for cascading knowledge and offering training and leadership opportunities to young school leaders. Connected through mobile technology, young women overcome rural isolation, help build each other’s lives, and use their experience and expertise to support many more vulnerable children to stay in school, thrive and lead change. The CAMFED Association now provides the backbone of the programs through which CAMFED is bringing about systemic change. As Executive Advisor, CAMFED Association, Fiona is leading on ways to grow and replicate this powerful model. Fiona has a MA in International Law and Legal Studies and a Bachelor Degree in Law.
