Educate a girl, empower a woman, inspire a community, change lives!

On Tuesday 18th September 2018, Jenny Ives and her alumnae association team coordinated another well attended Alice Hemming Lunch. The annual event, held at the The National Liberal Club in London, is an opportunity for the CGEF to raise funds for its alumnae association.


Our Speaker this year was Dr Diana Owen OBE, Director General of the Royal Over-Seas League (ROSL). Through its charitable arm, the Golden Jubilee Trust, ROSL has recently become donors of the CGEF, with a particular emphasis on sponsoring girls in Pakistan. The CGEF and its sister charity, the Commonwealth Countries League have had a long history of association with ROSL and we are delighted to have had Dr Owen speak at the event.

Thank you to everyone who attended the event and continues to support the education of girls across the Commonwealth.
