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.
Link is delighted to announce the publication of our Biennial Review covering the period 2013-2015.
The comprehensive summary of the last two years, covering the time between 2013-2015, will be of great interest to our supporters. During this period, Link has launched several innovative and exciting new projects and experienced significant organisational change.
You can read an online copy of the Biennial Review by following the link below.

#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%
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.
