Donate online now to the Scotland Malawi Partnership...
The Scotland Malawi Partnership was born from Strathclyde University's 'Malawi Millennium Project' in early 2004, in response to the belief that there was a need to bring together under a single umbrella the many organizations and individuals throughout Scotland engaged in fostering and developing links between Scotland and Malawi. With the support of the Lord Provosts of Glasgow and Edinburgh, the Scotland Malawi Partnership was officially launched in April 2004.
Early events included a 'Shaping the Partnership' consultative conference at Strathclyde University and a health workshop. In November 2005, the SMP hosted the 'Malawi after Gleneagles: A Commission for Africa Case-Study' conference at the Scottish Parliament. Attended by over 250 delegates, this conference was widely acclaimed to be a resounding success. During the Conference the historic Cooperation Agreement between Scotland and Malawi was signed.
The partnership now exists to promote an informed, coordinated and effective way for individuals and organisations to be involved in Malawi. Our activities include; Circulating a monthly newsletter to members and other stakeholders; circulating a weekly news bulletin to keep members up to date with news from Malawi; hosting an annual 'Malawi Independence Day Celebrations'; administering a 'School Partnerships Working Group'; organising workshops, stakeholder meetings and training events; providing language lessons; responding to public enquiries about Malawi; producing practical publications; and organising responses to consultations (by the Scottish Government, DfID etc).
