Many successful small-scale interventions over several communities, all empowering and encouraging young and old, increasing facilities at a basic sustainable level.

Initially involved in a 2005-07 project (for boreholes near Mzimba, and science classrooms in a Mzuzu school) led by Irvine Seagate Rotary, I have since assisted several other west of Scotland Rotary Clubs in (i) helping two remote villages (Mbongondo & Makunkha) in the hills south of Rumphi in primary school improvements, in water supply, in school books and materials, and in creating year-round vehicle access over a bridge completed in 2015, (ii) helping Ayr Rotary with contacts leading to provision of solar power in remote areas near Ntcheu, and (iii) many other small assistances such as collecting bikes forwarded via Re-cycle to a project near Mchinji. Visits in 2005, 2007 and 2012 have led to continued personal friendships and a further visit in 2017.
