Real people, real partnerships

Malawi Fruits is committed to developing sustainable businesses in the north of Malawi.

Working in tourism and agriculture, they have empowered local people to start and run businesses which stimulate the local economy, provide employment and generate profits which can be used to continue the cycle of business development.

When people can earn their own living they can pay for school fees for their children and healthcare when their family needs it.

Just one of the thousands of people-to-people partnerships between Scotland and Malawi, working across all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
