Welcome to the Mamie Martin Fund website. The Mamie Martin Fund was established in 1993 by the family and friends of Mamie Martin, to advance the education of girls in secondary school in North Malawi.

Secondary school is not free in Malawi. Boarding schools are often essential to girls’ education for reasons of distance, safety and keeping girls in school. In 2023-24 MMF are paying the fees of, and supporting, 120 girls across seven schools, including 15 girls at a school for Deaf children in Embangweni. We work in partnership with the CCAP Synod of Livingstonia, Mchengautuba Community Day Secondary School in Mzuzu and with the RC Diocese of Karonga.

Fees at a boarding school (necessary for reasons of distance, safety and allowing the girls to study) are approx £500 a year, including the support for essential items which we provide. Fees at the Community Day school which we support are considerably lower at £72 a year. Again this figure includes essential items such as soap, sanitary wear, etc..

Regular donations are vital to our core funding. If you were able to donate something every month, this is the impact it would have.
