The next BEG trip will be Malawi in 2019! This is a great opportunity to revisit a previous expedition destination and to build on many of the brilliant Malawi-Scotland partnerships that already exist. The trip will be for around 2 weeks and we’re looking for a team of around 20 people to take part.

We are seeking those who have leadership experience or who are eager and willing to develop leadership skills as well as those who have a genuine interest in developing and encouraging young people to reach their potential.
