Reading Part 3: Mary's Meals - One Charity's Life-Changing Work in Malawi

  • Read the text and the statements on the opposite page.
  • Put a tick in the box next to the correct answer.
  • Only one answer is correct in each case.
Livinesi Kathiko, seven, sets out for school in the dawn mist with a spring in her step. An emerald-green adult’s handbag swings from her shoulder; a blue plastic mug is clasped tightly in her hand. She joins a procession of children on the red dusty road, chirping away merrily. "Now she goes to school happy, because she knows she is going to have some food," Beatrice, her 18-year-old sister, who has run the household since their mother fell ill three years ago, says. "Before, she was hungry all the time."
Livinesi goes to Chirimba primary school in the Machinga district of eastern Malawi. She is one of 1,500 pupils there who in the past fortnight have begun receiving food from Mary's Meals, a Scottish charity that provides one meal a day in a child's place of education. It is a remarkably straightforward aim, but one that changes lives. The food encourages parents to send their children to school, enables the youngsters to concentrate and grow strong, and in doing so gives hope to some of the world's poorest places. In certain areas of Malawi school attendance has risen by 50 per cent since Mary's Meals began providing food in 2002; a generation of educated young adults is emerging that otherwise would have dropped out of school.
This week Mary's Meals expects to mark the milestone of reaching one million children around the world – a fact that Magnus MacFarlane- Barrow, the charity's founder, says is amazing. "It's a number that is too big to get my brain around," he says. "But there's a risk of getting caught up in the excitement of the one million figure – for us it's all about reaching the next child; we have waiting lists in every country we work in, and that drives us on."
Beatrice shows me the room where she and her sisters – Livinesi, Naomi, 14, and Phoebe, 16 – sleep together, their bed a mat on the mud floor. In a second room the wall is covered with hand- drawn posters of the alphabet and sums. At first light she wakes her sisters and bathes them. It is Livinesi's job to sweep the yard, while the others fetch water. Beatrice organises their school books, then, when the girls have left for school, she will clean the house, and walk to the foothills of Chikala Mountain, towering above them, to look for saleable firewood. Food has never been part of their morning routine. A small patch of maize, sweet potato and pumpkin provides sporadic nourishment, but not enough for regular meals. "Having food at school has helped the children a lot," Beatrice says. "They are energetic and alert, and can concentrate. They are not gloomy anymore."
In 1992, during the Balkan wars, Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, asked for aid donations for Bosnian refugees. He and his brother Fergus joined a convoy of trucks laden with food and clothes on what he initially thought was a one-off mission. It blossomed into a full-time job with an organisation they named Scottish International Relief.
Ten years later, in 2002, MacFarlane-Barrow travelled to Malawi for the first time, to assist with famine relief. He met a woman whose 14-year-old son told him that his one wish in life was to have enough food to eat, and to go to school one day. That encounter sparked Scottish International Relief's evolution into a new school-based feeding operation, which MacFarlane-Barrow, a committed Catholic, named Mary's Meals.
The charity now provides for children in 12 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, at an average cost of £12.20 per child, per year. "I think the reason we have got so far is that we've found something that really works," MacFarlane-Barrow says. "It's so simple. And it's also been successful because it is the community who own this – they are in charge of providing volunteers to cook the food, and supervising it."
The school must agree to build a kitchen, fitted out to Mary's Meals' standard design, and organise a rota of mothers to come in every day and cook the food. They must provide storage facilities for the sacks of food, and ensure that they are securely kept, away from potential thieves. They must usually also agree to plant and tend to a copse of trees, which can be chopped down as fuel for the stoves, rather than felling existing forests.
In return, Mary's Meals will provide consistent delivery of the food, a stove and cooking utensils. A monitor will arrive by motorbike – unannounced – twice a week, to ensure the food is being served correctly and not taken away for sale. The charity will feed all the schools in one particular educational district, to avoid children migrating from one school to another just to seek food. Which district is fed depends on where the need is greatest. Dr Justin Malewezi - an expert on traditional society – says: "I had no idea just what one meal a day could do."
