We’re excited to launch our 2017 Member Awards programme and invite all our members to consider entering this fun competition.

This year, our Member Awards programme is structured around our 11 Partnership Principles


Planning and implementing together


Respect, trust and mutual understanding

Transparency and accountability

No-one left behind




Do no Harm




What do you have to do?


We’re inviting all our members to enter the awards by creating a short video, structured around one of the 11 Partnership Principles.

Videos should be fun and engaging, they should inspire and encourage active reflection. 

We hope that as well as telling us about your own partnership with Malawi, videos will also share experience and learning relating to one of the 11 principles

Perhaps your link has an inspiring story tell on “planning and implementing together”, perhaps you’ve had useful learning on “transparency and accountability”, perhaps you’ve got something to say on “sustainability” or are an expert on “No one left behind”.
