Rotary Foundation Global Grant: Improving Maternal and Child Health in Malawi
In July 2013, a small committee, made up of Mary Fraser (lead); Audrey Cooper; Jim Gardner and Gordon Robb with Helen Cheyne representing the University of Stirling, was set up to explore the possibility of a Global Grant scholarship. They chose the area of Maternal and Child Health in Malawi. The club needed an international partner in the country where the project was planned and received a positive response from the Limbe Club in Malawi.
The University of Stirling agreed to work with us to develop the package of information for potential candidates who would undertake the Masters in Health Research at Stirling, starting in September 2014
The Limbe Club
The Rotary Club of Limbe is situated in the southern region of Malawi, near the commercial hub of Blantyre. The club is part of District 9210 which covers Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. The club was chartered almost 30 years ago and currently has 38 members, 3 of whom are women. We have strong links with local charities, and historically have always had five Matching Grants
