As the back-to-school season begins, we’re reminded of the profound impact education has on young minds, particularly for the bright futures of girls in less economically developed regions of the world. In regions like sub-Saharan Africa, where opportunities can be more scarce, education becomes a beacon of hope, illuminating the path towards a brighter future.
Here at SAS Aesthetics, we’ve made a heartfelt commitment to support these young girls. We’ve made a pledge with CAMFED to provide a staggering 4 years of education to 16 girls every year. That means, each year, 16 girls in sub-Saharan Africa will have the opportunity to continue their educational journey, breaking the cycle of limited access to knowledge and paving the way for a world of possibilities.
“I am proud to support the Campaign for Female Education,” says Dr Mahsa Saleki, Medical Director and Founder of SAS Aesthetics. “CAMFED supports marginalised girls in sub-Saharan Africa to go to school, learn, thrive, and lead change in their communities. At SAS, we are fortunate enough to make people feel good about themselves every day and, through this amazing initiative, we get to spread that positivity far beyond the clinic and the UK, giving opportunity through educational to those who would not otherwise have access to them.”
At its core, CAMFED isn’t just an organisation; it’s a movement that ignites change. They strive for a future where young girls become empowered, independent trailblazers. What sets CAMFED apart from the rest is not just its lofty aspirations, but its unique strategy—a living, breathing system of accountability that empowers the very communities and youth it champions.
“We are truly grateful to Mahsa and SAS Aesthetics for choosing to invest in CAMFED,” Becs Brocken, Senior Manager of Corporate Relations for CAMFED. “Together we can ensure more marginalised girls across sub-Saharan Africa are seen, heard, and supported through school to achieve their full potential. The support is a wonderful example of what can be achieved when forward-thinking female entrepreneurs decide to do business differently.”
CAMFED has already supported more than 5.5 million children to go to school across Ghana, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. In fact, millions more students have benefited from an improved educational environment across our partner schools. Discover more about the radical work CAMFED does to improve female education here.
