Scotland and Malawi: an old partnership, a new approach?

Scotland and Malawi have a shared history dating back more than 155 years to the travels of Dr Livingstone. Today, it is estimated more than 94,000 Scots are involved in a people-to-people link with Malawi, and 46% personally know someone working with Malawi. This is a unique national effort defined and underpinned by a spirit of dignified two-way partnership, in which the government is working in synergy with civic society, mobilising support and engagement from communities across Scotland.
