30 Open Mics
MMF Birthday30
Campaign by Mamie Martin Fund (RCN SC021483)
The Mamie Martin Fund is 30 years old in 2023. Join us in the #Birthday30 Challenge to celebrate that milestone. During 2023 pledge to do 30 things - lighthouses, bridges, tell 30 people about us ....


For 30 years The Mamie Martin Fund have been supporting girls to attend and complete secondary school in Malawi, where girls have less access to education than boys and are less likely to finish school.

Happy Birthday to The Mamie Martin Fund!

The latest available Sustainable Development Goal, SDG 5 (Gender Equality) data, shows that the world is not on track to achieve gender equality by 2030.

Nearly halfway to the 2030 endpoint for the SDGs, the time to act and invest in women and girls is now.

You can find out more about The Mamie Martin Fund's work and the brilliant young women they support, here.

Throughout 2023 I'm joining the Mamie Martin Fund's #Birthday30 challenge and taking on 30 Open Mic performances, sharing spoken word poetry and sharing news of the Mamie Martin Fund's brilliant work.

Updates and pictures will be shared on this page!
