We are proud to partner organisations both in Malawi and in Scotland.
The CCAP Synod of Livingstonia has been our partner since our inception in 1993. Without these colleagues, the Mamie Martin Fund could not have been established, far less continue to support girls’ education for almost three decades. Rev Vincent Kalua is the Education Director, pictured here with Moira Dunworth on a Trustee visit in 2018. Our partnership is invaluable but Vincent’s personal support of our work is also much appreciated.
The Soko Fund is a Scottish-based charity which supports young women at university in Malawi. We collaborate on some fundraising and policy-making and constantly learn from each other. At least five MMF beneficiaries are awarded Soko funding every four years. Watch our video (below) about ‘interconnectivity’!
Mchengautuba Community Day Secondary School is a newly-established school in a very poor area of Mzuzu. The school is government and community funded. It is managed by the School Management Committee together with the Parent-Teacher Association and the ‘Mothers’ Group’, a community-based organisation focused on the welfare needs of the pupils. The local community contributes to the continuing building of the school.
The Catholic Diocese of Karonga owns and runs four schools in the North of Malawi. St Mary’s Karonga Girls’ Secondary School is a grant-aided secondary school just outside the city of Karonga and the Mamie Martin Fund will support girls there from 2019. Pictured here is the Head Teacher, Mrs Cizumila, the District Officer, Mr Kamanga and the MMF Malawi Manager, Mrs Sibande.
