  • Sport Relief Programme - The Scottish Government also has a programme in partnership with Sport Relief that is funding projects in Malawi, Uganda and South Africa.


  • Climate Justice Fund - A total of 5 projects are being funded in Malawi and Zambia to help people in vulnerable communities deal with the impacts of climate change.
