Malawi

Malawi is home to our largest school feeding programme. It remains one of the poorest countries in the world and faces huge challenges in education, access to healthcare and widespread child malnutrition.

We reach hundreds of thousands of primary aged children across the country, where we work closely with schools and community volunteers who help prepare and serve the nutritious meals every school day.

Mary’s Meals began in Malawi in 2002 when our founder met a 14-year-old boy who told him: “I want to have enough food to eat and to be able to go to school one day.”
