The BBC is doing a great series on social business and charities, it's latest installment features the education concern CAMFED. Founded in 1993, CAMFED has helped over 500,000 African girls finish their education.
Many countries in Africa do not provide free education, so for many parents the costs are out of reach.

Camfed ensures that girls can stay in school by enabling their families and paying tuition.
From the BBC, here is the feature on CAMFED from Alvin's Guide to Good Business.
