Link Community Development

Link Community Development (Link) is an international organisation working towards improving the quality of education in sub-Saharan Africa. Since 1992, Link has worked in Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Uganda and previously in South Africa, positively impacting the learning outcomes of over 1.7 million people across 3,000 schools. Link primarily works in rural areas of the countries we are associated with, as this is where the infrastructure is poorest and the help is needed the most. Link believes in a world where all children have access to the quality education they deserve.

Link is launching our 2015 Christmas appeal.

Here at Link, we believe that education is the key that unlocks the door for children to live a more enriched life. A basic education has the potential to life 171 million out of poverty and lead a better quality of life.

Since 1992, Link has benefited 1.7 million children in over 3,000 schools. Help us continue our work by donating to our Christmas appeal and giving the Gift of Education.

#MalawiFact 3: While attendance at Malawi's primary schools is good, it's a different picture at secondary schools where less than 30% of eligible children attend (and only about 1 in 10 actually complete their education). In Scotland attendance at secondary schools is currently around 92%

#MalawiFact 2: Crowded classrooms are the norm in Malawi - it's not uncommon to have over 300 children of all ages in one class with ONE teacher! Last year in Scotland the average class size of primary school pupils was 23.3.

It’s ten years since the historic 2005 Cooperation Agreement was signed between the Governments of Scotland and Malawi. Yesterday First Minister Nicola Sturgeon hosted a reception at Bute House to mark the historic occasion.

At Link Community Development International we are proud to have played our part in establishing long term relationships between the two countries.

To celebrate we'd like to tell you a few things about Malawi and Scotland! Here's the first one ...

#MalawiFact 1: Malawi has a population of 15.9 million of which 8.9 million are under 18 years of age - over 52%. That's more than 8 time the number of young people who live in Scotland where they make up less than 20% of the population.
