Providing 100,000 school lunches in Malawi & Liberia
Mary’s Meals work in the world’s poorest communities to provide a meal in a place of education, attracting children to the classroom and providing an escape route from poverty.
We sponsor four Mary’s Meals schools, three in Malawi and one in Liberia where we are currently feeding 1,486 children every school day. Since our sponsorship started all three have had a rise in enrolment, attendance and academic performance. We’re proud to be continuing our partnership into 2017 with February being our first month of fundraising.
Mary’s Meals is an international movement that sets up school feeding projects in communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. The charity now feeds 1,667,067 children every school day and it costs just £15.90 to feed a child for a school year. We sponsored our first school with Mary’s Meals in 2011 and now feed over 1,000 a day.
