Photograph of a team of men constructing the wooden framework of a building. The men are possibly of the Ngoni people. A number of men can be seen on the roof of the structure and others sit around the outside of the building. The Ngoni people are an ethnic group living in Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia, in east-central Africa. The Ngoni trace their origins to the Zulu people of kwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. This belongs to a series of Church of Scotland Foreign Missions Committee lantern slides relating to Rev Donald Fraser (1870-1933). Rev Donald Fraser, the Scottish missionary, was born in Argyllshire, Scotland, the son of a Free Church minister. In his youth Rev Fraser helped found the Student Volunteer Movement in Britain and the World Student Christian Federation before beginning missionary service in Malawi with the Free Church of Scotland. He worked in Malawi from 1896 until he returned to Scotland in 1925. He was first posted to Ekwendeni and later Embangweni. Rev Fraser worked closely with the Ngoni people.
