The Soko Fund
Welcome to THE SOKO FUND a small Scottish-registered education charity devoted exclusively (and uniquely) to securing university education for women in Malawi – one of the poorest countries
in the world.
Poverty means that aid to Malawi is focussed first and foremost on food, then health (AIDS is rife) then basic school education. Understandably university education gets almost no attention.
Experience has shown, though, that it has immense benefits, especially for women -- individual women and their extended families can look to a far brighter future, local universities can counter the ‘brain drain,’ and the whole country is able to capitalize on indigenous female talent. That’s why THE SOKO FUND exists.

Music for Malawi - Come and Sing Raises over £3000!
Thanks to everyone who came along to sing or in the audience for our Come and Sing on Saturday. We were delighted so many people came to participate - we have nearly 220 singers!
This was one of our big fundraisers of the year and it was wonderful to raise
£3200 (though we're still counting).
This will go a long way to supporting more women to gain access to higher education, improving not only their own lives but assists Malawi in its own development through providing qualified personnel in a variety of fields.
