Our vision is that every needy child receives one daily meal in their place of education.
With Mary’s Meals we dare to dream. As more and more people become involved in the Mary’s Meals movement we look forward to the day when every needy child is offered a daily meal in school. Mary’s Meals began in Malawi and Malawi is still the main focus of the campaign. This is because we have the people and infrastructure in place to expand the Mary’s Meals programme just as quickly as funds become available.

Underpinning CAFOD's work is a deeply held set of values that are central to the organisation's ethos and identity.
We act based on principles of compassion, solidarity, stewardship and hope. Confronted by immense poverty and suffering, CAFOD's most fundamental response is compassion.
CAFOD also stands alongside excluded communities, sharing resources, uniting in prayer, defending rights and challenging the systems that keep people poor.
CAFOD draws its inspiration from Scripture, the Church's social teaching, and the experiences and hopes of the poor. Our mission is to promote human development and social justice in witness to Christian faith and Gospel values.

The street children of Africa
need friends. Friends to help them survive, to prevent
their abuse, to give them hope and self-respect so that
they can look forward optimistically to the future. It
was to be a friend to these children, and to help their
other friends, that the United Kingdom registered charity
Street Child Africa was formed in 1998.

Sight Savers believe that sight is a basic human right, and that everyone - including those in the world's poorest countries - should have access to the treatment and eye care that they need. Sight Savers are important because, as well as providing treatment that can help to restore sight, they also assist with the rehabilitation of those who are irreversibly blind - thereby helping them to make a better future for themselves.
