Clean water is a vital resource and so, with a partner, we have been involved in installing clean water pumps which can be used for cooking, cleaning, and is also used in providing Marys Meals daily in the local primary school.
The Partnership is keen to help in promoting health in Malawi. Working with the Rotary Club of Bridge of Allan and Dunblane, we are supporting the provision of midwifes with specific training in Fistula, particularly in the Mulanje region of Malawi where Likhubula is situated.
In Dunblane, there is great support for Marys Meals. This is now served daily in the local primary school and we have sponsored the kitchen.
The partnership began life in Dunblane Cathedral, but is now a link between the whole community of Dunblane and Likhubula involving schools, churches and the community at large. The partnership is also involved and interested in projects involving sustainable argiculture, water and sanitation and education.
Our partnership is just that- a partnership. Therefore, as well as the projects we are involved with, it is important to maintain friendship links.
Along with Dunblane High School, the partnership are committed to supporting eductional bursaries for 5 bursars each year at Chambe Secondary School who would otherwise not be able to continue to secondary education.
Working with the projects office at Mulanje Mission Hospital, the partnership is supporting a sustainable goat rearing project in the Likhubula community.
Through the partnership, Dunblane High School in Scotland are now linking with Chambe Secondary School in Mulanje.
The Mvano (guild) of Likhubula CCAP church is linking with Dunblane Cathedral Guild through the partnership.
