Susan Dalgety, a long-time supporter and former board member of the Scotland Malawi Partnership, is in the midst of an exciting six month trip to Malawi.

During this time, she will be researching and writing an inspiring new book about Malawi which will be published next year by Luath Press. 

She will also be writing a weekly column called Letter from Malawi which will be published in the Scotsman every Saturday. In her column, Susan will describe everyday life in Malawi, as well as highlight the friendship between Scotland and Malawi.

As part of her research, Susan is keen to hear from members who have interesting stories about their links with Malawi. We are delighted to support this unique opportunity to promote members’ work.

Please contact the Scotland Malawi Partnership with details if you would like to be involved.
