There is a great video of Ann Cotton, founder of CAMFED, and SSE Fellow, over at the Social Edge forum. Ann, now also a Skoll Fellow, has achieved a huge amount with CAMFED over 14 years, but remained humble and unassuming throughout. And still as passionate about her social mission as she was to start with, as the video makes clear.
Ann has said of us that "SSE provided a forum to test ideas and draw on other people’s experiences. This enabled me to analyse the key ingredients and factors that had led to success and make conscious choices about when and how to grow."
It’s wonderful to think that this organisation played a small part in helping Ann and her team at CAMFED achieve what they have, changing the lives of hundreds of thousands of African girls and women (check out their ‘impact’ page for more).
