Classrooms for Malawi Appoint a CEO

Classrooms for Malawi are delighted to announce the appointment of our new Chief Executive Officer, Amy Blake.

Since our inception as a charitable organisation in 2012, we have benefited from the hard work and leadership of many volunteers (past and present) who have tirelessly worked to deliver a positive impact for the children of Malawi. In order to continue and grow this amazing organisation, as a board of trustees, we made the decision to appoint a full time member of staff who will lead the organisation in our next exciting chapter of growth and to deliver even more positive impact to the children of Malawi.

Classrooms for Malawi HQ

Thanks to your help and support since 2012, when Classrooms for Malawi was nothing more than a conversation over a kitchen table, we have improved the lives of thousands of children in Malawi already. We have grown an incredible amount, with partners in Scotland and Malawi helping us to achieve our goals of providing safe and fit for purpose classrooms in some of the world’s poorest communities, and changing lives and communities for the better.

We have now grown so much, and have so much work to complete in order to achieve our increasingly ambitious goals, that we have recently moved into our own office and employed our first part-time paid member of staff.

Putting the fun in fundraising!

In our most ambitious year of projects to date, with more partners than ever before – including Williamwood Secondary SchoolKibble Education Centre , Dunblane and Kilsyth Boys’ Brigades, and the St Bernadette’s Parish Malawi Partnership, plus many more – we are putting a spotlight on some fantastic fundraising efforts. in the last year! These are just some of the hundreds of fundraisers which have taken place for Classrooms for Malawi, some big, some small, all making a huge difference. Get involved, and help give some of the world’s poorest children the best chance in life.

Classrooms for Malawi scores with the Global Goals

“Together we can make the global goals real.”

Those were the words spoken by Seonaid Stevenson from Classrooms for Malawi as she gave her closing remarks at the charity’s Global Goals event which was held at the charity’s new office building in St Columbkille’s Church Hall in Rutherglen on Saturday 6th February.

The event was organised by Classrooms for Malawi and supported by funding from the Scottish Government and Scotland Malawi Partnership. It was designed to raise awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals or, as they’re more commonly referred to as, the “Global Goals”. The Global Goals are a set of 17 Goals that every UN member state has signed up to.
