America Takes Pleasure in the Royals

It seems as if the world is toppling over from the bad news we receive every day.  Just keeping track of our President's Twitter account, reading and worrying about gobal warming, concern over the newly dropping Dow, and even concern about buying or sending holiday gifts and cards can raise everyone's blood pressure on any given day.  That's why it's enjoyable to read about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.  What they do makes little difference to Americans in our daily lives, but it's so nice to read about -- blood-pressure lowering material, to be sure.

Prince Harry may not be traveling to Africa next week with wife Meghan Markle, but in her stead he will be carrying on her campaign for women’s empowerment and girls’ education.

“For him to step in and say, ‘These are not just women’s issues, they are about human beings’ issues, they are about dignity’ — him putting his voice in this means a lot,” says Angeline Murimirwa, executive director of CAMFED, who will meet Harry on Tuesday, the one-year anniversary of when the world was told of his engagement to Meghan.

CAMFED tackles poverty and inequality in sub-Saharan Africa through the education of girls and the empowerment of young women. And through its alumni association, CAMA, which Murimirwa co-founded, members go out into communities and encourage even more young girls to get into education.

Murimirwa tells PEOPLE she admires the efforts of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to use their public profile to “bring attention to this issue … and it will also bring attention to CAMA as a network.”

Since it started in 1992, by helping just 32 students in Zimbabwe, CAMFED has aided four million schoolchildren.

“We had foundations that were way stronger than other girls from our village. So we realized we had to give back to the community,” Murimirwa adds of those early days.

Their work continues as each alumni, or CAMA member, supports at least two children every year though school, through their own resources.

By the end of last year, they had helped almost half a million children over 20 years.
