Mary’s MealsCharity Partner
The £5,260.23 our members donated in October will help us sponsor four schools this year through our partner Mary’s Meals. Mary’s Meals provide a meal in a place of education, attracting some of the world’s poorest children to the classroom and providing an escape route from poverty. Every day our 1% is feeding 1,451 children in four schools: Kalopa Primary School - Mzimba District, Northern Malawi Gomani Primary School - Chiradzulu District, Southern Malawi Chitakale Primary School - Blantyre, Southern Malawi Dudu Town Public School - Montserrado County, Liberia All of these schools have witnessed a rise in rates of enrolment, attendance and academic performance since our feeding programs started.
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 2,058,099 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 have been working with them ever since.
