Founded in 1967, the CGEF, formerly known as the Commonwealth Countries League Education Fund, sponsors girls of ability through secondary school where, without financial assistance, they would be unable or unlikely to continue.

Almost 3,000 girls living in some of the most disadvantaged and remote places have been sponsored by the CGEF in 40 Commonwealth countries since 1967. The vast majority of our Alumnae are now adults, some are in their ‘60s’!

In 2022/23 CGEF sponsored 208 girls in 17 Commonwealth countries. 57 graduated duringthe year with ‘O’ or ‘A’ levels, the rest are making excellent progress in the lower years of secondary school.

It costs an average £500 to sponsor a girl for one year and girls are usually sponsored for an average of four years.

Thank you for your support. Your donation is a fantastic opportunity to show your commitment and passion for such a worthwhile cause that directly impacts the lives of so many girls in so many low and middle economy Commonwealth communities. If you would like to volunteer, support or donate, please contact us directly.
