#Proud2support: CCLEF – New Name, New Look, Same Dedication and Committment

London, June 2016. The CCLEF – Commonwealth Countries League Education Fund has changed its name to the Commonwealth Girls Education Fund (CGEF).

CGEF website page

Set up as a charity in 1967, the charity celebrates 50 years of commitment and dedication to girls’ education throughout 2017.

The charity believes that when we educate a girl, we can help change a community. It costs around £500 to educate a girl for a year.

During 2015/16, the charity sponsored 382 capable girls through secondary schools in 30 Commonwealth countries, empowering and enabling them to become agents of positive change in their own communities and beyond.

With the new name and refreshed website www.cgefund.org, the trustees hope that people are inspired by their work, and support them through their events, activities, sponsorships or donations to provide the basic right of education to many more Commonwealth Girls over the next 50 years.
