Education is important and girls' education even more so in a culture where it is usually sidelined in terms of priority for family resources or cultural pressures. By enabling young women to be educated, we can change their future and that of their families, even the future of their Nation.

Moira is a founder member, Co-convenor and Trustee of the Mamie Martin Fund, which supports girls' secondary education in North Malawi. Through this voluntary work she met many Malawian people who are now firm friends. She visits Malawi every year on behalf of the MMF Board and works there with its Malawian partners, the Education Department of the Synod of Livingstonia, Central Church of Africa Presbyterian (CCAP), Mchengautuba Community Day Secondary School and the Diocese of Karonga. It is always a pleasure to spend a few holiday days by the lake after a busy time of work up north.
