A charity that Meghan Markle & Prince Harry support has received a big surprise!

The Campaign for Female Education is one of the organizations that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex work within Africa to bring girls' education. 

Good news for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry!

The couple has been working with the Campaign for Female Education for many years, including donating $130,000 from the birth of their daughter Lilibet "Lili" Diana. The CAMFED helps African girls to start school and continue studying.

Now, the organization has received a big boost! The CAMFED received funding of $2.5 million Conrad N. Hilton Humanitarian Prize.

"We are super excited because there are no additional resources for us to be able to do what we've always done and to be able to get more scale and support more learners," said Executive Director Angie Murimirwa to People magazine.

Murimirwa also added that the Prize is very important to "bring girls' education back on the agenda at a critical time such as this." Talking about Markle and Harry, she added that they still keep in touch, "we've continued to engage with them and interact with their team. They echo their voice with us."

"This prize allows us to shine a bright light on ... supporting the next generation of girls — and, of course, boys — [being] able to go to school," she continued. 

"We had young women who were using their own smartphones to get content and hold social-distance study groups in the villages to be able to show that children were not losing learning, but also to respond to any child protection issues," she said about the girls' education in pandemic.
