Since 2011, the Programme has had an impact not only in the rural communities where the CJF is working but also in the way that all the levels of the Malawian Public Administration look at the water resources management and the sustainability in the long term.
Likewise, it has built strong bonds between Scotland and Malawi through knowledge exchange and life-experiences from the people (both of Malawi and of Scotland) that have had the opportunity to work in a very different environment.
