Primary and secondary education

School partnerships are an important and integral part of the Scotland-Malawi friendship as they allow each new generation of young Scot and young Malawian the opportunity to be inspired and get involved.

Many Scottish primary and secondary schools are members of the SMP and many have active links with a school in Malawi or learn about Malawi as part of their curriculum.

The SMP offers considerable advice, support and information to assist Scottish schools to get involved. Follow these links to learn more:

Scottish schools and young Scots with an interest in Malawi can join the SMP at any time and, best of all, it’s completely free! Join now!
