Trustees, Angie and Moira, were happy to be in Mzuzu when the Malawi-Scotland Partnership held one of its regional events there. They write: “we were amazed at how many people were there and how many organisations were represented. Interesting, lot of organisations had sent more than one representative, an indicator, reflecting their commitment to networking and collaboration.”
The focus of the day was the Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (SDG2030) and Shadreck Ngulube, Regional Co-ordinator, went through them one by one, noting how we are currently missing all these goals.
The meeting broke into groups and Moira and Angie took part in the Education one where the sharing of information was really useful. The session concluded with a useful presentation by James Gondwe of The Centre for Youth and Development about communication. We all need to be clear as to what our organisations do and what our values are. Then we need to use a range of methods to let the world know about our work, ensuring that we are all giving the same message.
