Twittering for Chitambo
New Zambia programme
Zambia had been chosen as one of 4 partners for future for the Scottish International Development (ID) programme http://news.scotland.gov.uk/News/Scotland-s-place-as-global-citizen-2be5.aspx.
Scottish Government is running Twitter conversation this week (w/c 31 October) which they are calling #ScotlandAfricaWeek – encouraging people to tweet and share their relationships/work with Africa, or send us photos to tweet.
This is to celebrate the 11th anniversary of the Scottish Government’s International Development programme on 3 November, and the team will be highlighting a wide range of existing Scotland/Africa links on our @ScotGovID twitter account using the hashtag #ScotlandAfricaWeek. The idea is that they generate publicity, not just for international development work/aid in Africa, but also all the other positive links they have, such as with the African diaspora communities in UK and specific activities which people might not always recognise as contributing to that relationship. Ultimately they want to tell a bigger, more positive story than just ‘aid for Africa.’
