MARY'S MEALS IS A GLOBAL MOVEMENT

A SIMPLE SOLUTION TO WORLD HUNGER

Mary’s Meals is a simple idea that works – by providing a daily meal in a place of education, chronically poor children are attracted to the classroom where they can gain a basic education that provides an escape route from poverty. Mary’s Meals feeds 1,230,171 children every day at school in 15 different countries, across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean.

Our mission is to enable people to offer their money, goods, skills, time, or prayer, and through this involvement, provide the most effective help to those suffering the effects of extreme poverty in the world’s poorest communities.

We welcome all into the Mary’s Meals family and we believe everyone has something important to contribute to the realisation of our vision.

 

Our values

WE HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE INNATE GOODNESS OF PEOPLE.

WE RESPECT THE DIGNITY OF EVERY HUMAN BEING AND FAMILY LIFE.

WE BELIEVE IN GOOD STEWARDSHIP OF THE RESOURCES ENTRUSTED TO US.

 

Our vision

THAT EVERY CHILD RECEIVES ONE DAILY MEAL IN THEIR PLACE OF EDUCATION AND THAT ALL THOSE WHO HAVE MORE THAN THEY NEED, SHARE WITH THOSE WHO LACK EVEN THE MOST BASIC THINGS.

WORKING TOGETHER WITH THOSE WHO SHARE OUR VISION, WE BELIEVE THERE IS NO GOOD REASON WHY THIS CANNOT BE REALISED.

"Before Mary’s Meals, the children had nothing to eat all day at school. They were always tired and had no energy or enthusiasm. Now they are very participative indeed and their stomachs are full!"

 

"Since Mary’s Meals has come, many children who had stopped attending have returned to school. You can see their enthusiasm!"

 

"This meal is very important for the children, not only for better learning, but also for their safety, as they can stay in school during noon breaks instead of searching for food."

 

 

THANK YOU FROM OUR FOUNDER AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE

First of all, thank you for your interest in joining the Mary’s Meals family.

In joining Mary’s Meals, you will become part of a global movement supported by people from all walks of life, focused on one simple goal – that every child receives a nutritious daily meal in their place of education.

From small beginnings feeding just 200 Malawian children in 2002, we are now reaching 1,230,171 children in 15 countries around the world with a daily meal in school.

We could not continue this work without our incredible supporters around the world, who give freely of their time, money, skills or prayer. In Malawi alone, more than 80,000 dedicated community volunteers rise early each day to prepare and serve meals for the children. It is through them that this movement grows.

The Director of Communications and Head of Digital are key roles for our organisation. They, and their teams, will be responsible for leading the global communications strategy, to raise awareness of Mary’s Meals globally, inform and inspire all involved in our mission.

This work of ours is already achieving something wonderful, and you can be a key part of it. However, with 61 million children still out of school because of poverty and millions more chronically hungry, our work is only just beginning.

More than ever, we need great people to join Mary’s Meals to ensure that our promise of a hot daily meal in school to some of the world’s most vulnerable and impoverished children is fulfilled.

If you would like to make a difference to the lives of thousands of children across the world, we’d love to hear from you.

Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow

Chief Executive

"Mary's Meals is a series of lots of little acts of love.

If you put all those acts of sacrifice together, it creates a beautiful thing."
