Charles Fawcett, the ‘Aiming Higher in Malawi’ project manager

 “The project makes a huge difference not only the girls’ education, and disabled children but to the wider communities in Malawi tackling ongoing poverty and disease concerns.”

 “Discrimination, harmful practices such as initiation ceremonies, female circumcision, forced early marriages, high infant mortality rates and discrimination seriously hamper the lives of many young disabled children and girls in Malawi.”

 Jim Logue, Airdrie Councillor

“A moving and inspirational experience”

Malawi is one of the most beautiful countries I have ever visited but the levels of hunger, poverty, destitution and HIV Aids made the visit extremely harrowing and humbling.

“I saw schools with no desks, chairs or teaching materials, where classes of over 80 pupils were taught with all pupils sitting on concrete floors. Children as young as 5 walking bare-foot to school every day sometimes in excess of 5 miles, entire families who were all HIV positive including young infants.”
