Real people, real partnerships

Blantyre Councillor Gertrude Chirambo visited Scotland and alerted Scots to the destruction of all the bridges connecting a local school to the community in recent floods. Children were having to wade a polluted and dangerous stream.

The Scotland Malawi Partnership successfully sourced funding from the Beit Trust for the replacement of the bridge, restoring the opportunities of the local children to resume their schooling safely.

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