Real people, real partnerships

The Mamie Martin Fund has been supporting girls' education in Malawi since 1993 by paying school fees for girls from some of Malawi's poorest communities.

This financial assistance has allowed 2,500 young women to take their place in Malawian society. Among them are teachers, lawyers, nurses and entrepreneurs.

To educate a girl is to educate the whole community.

Just one of the thousands of people-to-people partnerships between Scotland and Malawi, working across all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
