REAL PEOPLE, REAL PARTERSHIPS
Deborah Ngalande is a Primary School teacher at Mendulo Primary School near Luchenza, Malawi. She is secretary of the local Disabled Children's Group and has been working tirelessly with the Healthy Lifestyles Project in Coatbridge to reach some of the most vulnerable and needy children in remote Malawian villages.
When school groups from the west of Scotland visit Malawi, Deborah directs the visitors to the disabled children, who previously have been hidden or locked away. Such partnerships can help challenge negative cultural attitudes towards disabled children who too often face bullying and discrimination.
Just one of the thousands of people-to-people partnerships between Scotland and Malawi, working across all 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
