Mary’s Meals is an international charity whose vision is that every child should have a daily meal in a place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things.
Our idea is a simple one that works; we attract chronically hungry children to the classroom where they receive an education, which could be their route out of poverty. We are currently feeding 1,230,171 children a daily meal in their place of education, in 15 different countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean and Latin America.
Today alone, over 8,000 children will die from hunger related causes around the world. A further 61 million children are out of education. That is why we need you to become part of a global movement, consisting of people from all walks of life, that does not allow a child to go hungry in this world of plenty.
It only costs €15.60 to feed a child for an entire school year. We are also committed to keeping our costs low, spending at least 93c of every €1 donated on our charitable activities. So, every fundraising effort, no matter how big or how small, makes a huge impact on the lives of children living in poverty.
If you would like to join us at this year’s Mini-Marathon, we’d love to hear from you! Contact the fundraising team at email@example.com.
Please join us and, standing shoulder to shoulder, we can feed the next child.
