International Women’s Day 2017 – 8th March


The theme for International Women’s Day this year is ”Be Bold for Change”. With your help, the Mamie Martin Fund is changing the lives of young women in Northern Malawi every day by helping with secondary school fees. In turn these young women go on to change other lives in Malawi for the better. Our Malawi Manager, Mercy Sibande, is eloquent about the changes that come about as a result of the education of the ‘girl-child’ in Malawi. See that video here.

Our photo shows Mercy and our Soko Fund colleague, Winnie Mkandawire Moyo working with Trustee, Moira Dunworth, planning how best to support ‘our’ girls and young women. Mercy’s baby son sleeps happily beside her, demonstrating effective multi-tasking, as women do all over the world.
