Where we work

The Mamie Martin Fund currently supports 148 girls at 8 secondary schools in North Malawi. Click on the location to see details about each school which we support.


Five of these schools are boarding schools run by the CCAP Synod of Livingstonia and include a school for Deaf children. One is a Community Day Secondary School – a Malawian Government school in a very poor area of Mzuzu. From 2019, our partners the RC Diocese of Karonga and we support girls in two of their girls’ boarding schools, in Karonga and Chitipa.

Handy Kamanga on the importance of support for school fees

Today, while 27% of girls in Malawi enrol in secondary school only 13% actually attend and just a fraction of that group will finish school with only 5% passing their MSCE exam. Secondary education in Malawi is not free and many girls drop out due to financial hardship.

The Mamie Martin Fund believes that no girl who has gained a place at secondary school should have to give it up because of poverty.

By supporting us you can play your part in working towards this ambitious goal.
