In Autumn 2016, we became one of the partners in a three-year ambitious project operating across 21 schools in the Rumphi District of the Northern Region of a Malawi. It was funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Justice Fund and is run in partnership with the University of Livingstonia and Rumphi organisation Living Trees of Livingstonia. Whilst that funded project has come to an end our connections with Malawi have continued to grow.
We see our role as guiding projects in the direction of food sovereignty and environmentally responsible agriculture, and we would also like to foster links between these schools in rural tropical Africa and our local ones in urban Leith. Developing responsible global citizens starts with building understanding and empathy across the planet.
