REAL PEOPLE, REAL PARTNERSHIPS
The Scotland Malawi Partnership exists to coordinate the work of some 94,000 Scots who have active links with Malawi.
Our sister organisation, the Malawi Scotland Partnership, does the same in Malawi: it is Malawi-owned and Malawi-led, supporting the many Malawian organisations that have links with Scotland.
Together, we believe that the UN's Sustainable Development Goals will only succeed if we can mobilise real people and real communities to get involved, and if we can work not through charity alone but dignified, two-way partnerships.
