MMF Bike to Malawi 2021

Why we need your help

In 1921, 100 years ago, Jack and Mamie Martin set off from Scotland to go to Malawi where they would live as missionaries. In this centenary year, we will recreate that journey by pooling our individual cycling distances. The 1921 journey took two months and this project is open for two months, 3rd June - 3rd August 2021. You are encouraged to register (free) for the ride and log your distances online or by email from 3rd June. As part of the wider project, there will be organised Group Rides which will also be open for you to join. Each Group Ride is listed as a separate event on Eventbrite. Registering on a Group Ride means you are also registered to log your distances for the wider project. Riders cover their own costs of participating.

The idea is to ride in your own locality, covering any distance you wish. 
You would then log those miles on our webpage, 
 contributing to the target of 10,679 miles or 17,186 Kms
The Mamie Martin Fund was established in 1993 by the family and friends of Mamie Martin, to advance the education of girls in secondary school in North Malawi.  We currently pay the fees of, and support, 139 girls across six schools, including seven girls at a school for Deaf children in Embangweni. We work with the CCAP Synod of Livingstonia, Mchengautuba Community Day Secondary School in Mzuzu and with the RC Diocese of Karonga.
MMF is managed by a Board of Trustees, one of whom is Malawian and lives there. At least one MMF Trustee visits our schools each year as part of our governance and our work is managed and overseen in Malawi by Mercy Sibande.

The idea is to ride wherever you wish covering any distance in as many trips as you like. You would ride and log those miles (on our webpage) from 3rd June, contributing to the overall target of 10,679 miles or 17,186 Kms.
