Our Mission

To advance the education of young women and girls in North Malawi in secondary schools operated by the Synod of Livingstonia, Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP), and other educational institutions.

Mercy Sibande talks about the importance of educating the girl-child in Malawi

We exist in order to support girls’ education in North Malawi and the vast majority of our income and resources is used to pay school fees. We are not able to accept donations for material resources, such as building projects because we don’t have the capacity to manage such funding adequately.

If a donation is made specifically for material items, these are sourced in Malawi so that the country receives the economic benefit.

Although boys in Malawi also require support through their secondary education, the Mamie Martin Fund only supports girls.

The Mamie Martin Fund has, in the past, been able to support the building of hostels and teachers’ houses at the schools, however this was due to specific grants and donations made to the Fund. At the present time, the Board have decided to focus on the core purpose of the charity, which is to provide school fees for those girls in need. Therefore we can’t accept requests for building work nor manage funds for same.
