Real people, real partnerships

Since 2005, the communities of Dunblane and Likhubula have worked in partnership to embody their shared motto of 'Umodzi': 'Unity'.

Projects have included animal husbandry, scholarship programmes for high school pupils, water access, sanitation and women's health.

The Dunblane-Likhubula Partnership is working to overcome the barriers caused by poverty to create a just, fair world.

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

  2. Ask your partner/friends in Malawi to take a picture with the same Goal sign.
  3. Tweet us @ScotlandMalawi with your picture using #Goal1 or email us your picture and we'll tweet for you!
  4. Write to your local MP to tell them about your Malawi link and ask for their support to help achieve Goal 1.
