Emma recently became an ambassador of Camfed International.
Camfed fights poverty in rural Africa by educating girls and creating leadership opportunities for them when they complete school.
The charity does more than provide girls with books or school fees. They support them throughout their development, from primary school until they are young adults with the confidence and skills to make positive choices and do well financially. Camfed's complete bursary package provides girls with everything they need to succeed academically and to maximise the value of their education after graduation.
Since 1993, nearly two million children in some of the poorest regions of Ghana, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Zambia have benefited from Camfed's education programmes.
Emma said of the work the charity does, "Education is so important, not just for the individual but for society as a whole, and in the poorest areas it is so often girls who miss out. I am delighted to support Camfed and the amazing work they do."
