Each year, our partnership provides financial support for orphaned babies, equips newborns with essential clothing, funds life-saving cervical screening equipment, keeps girls in school with reusable sanitary pads, provides women with underwear, helps children learn with reading schemes and in school-support, trains teachers and equips local sports teams. In return, our pupils and supporters enjoy helping and learning from each other.

The Watson’s Malawi Partnership builds on the close relationship that George Watson’s College (GWC) shares with Malawi, enabling us to support and learn from each other on a sustainable basis. It is a fund-raising initiative managed by GWC, part of the Edinburgh Merchant Company Education Board, a charity registered in Scotland under charity reference number SC009747.
