In 2019 The Good Shepherd School joined with Holy Ghost and St Stephens Catholic Church to raise £4267.30 for Mary's Meals. This money enabled us to sponsor a feeding programme for Beka Primary School in Malawi in 2019.
The Good Shepherd's support of Beka Primary School has been a real success - so much so that the enrolment has increased from 304 (173 boys and 131 girls) to 348 (174 boys and 174 girls). Interestingly nearly all of this increase is in the number of girls coming to school; there is now an exact 50/50 split in boys/girls at the school.
This increase has also helped contribute to Mary's Meals new feeding figures. Each and every school day Mary's Meals is now feeding 1,667,067 children!
Due to the success of last years feeding programme, and the increase in enrolment, the sponsorship for the next 12 months will now be £5533.20. The increase in enrolment is an indicator of the success of the feeding programme!
Please help us to hit our 2020 target.
In these uncertain times, now more than ever ,we want to ensure that all the children in Beka Primary School can benefit from the goodwill and generosity of our school and parish community.
'Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ Matthew 25: 34-40
“The school’s commitment towards developing pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural qualities is second to none.” OFSTED March 2014
