REAL PEOPLE, REAL PARTNERSHIPS
'Students for Malawi' sees hundreds of Strathclyde University students working in partnership with Malawi. One of their projects has developed low cost, locally produced off-grid energy supply systems, powering female-led energy kiosks.
This has supported community economic development and helped empower vulnerable women.
Access to affordable, safe and clean sources of energy can be life-changing for the world's poorest.
Just one of the thousands of people-to-people partnerships between Scotland and Malawi, working across all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
