The Mamie Martin Fund does not send material items from Scotland to Malawi.
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.
