The Tullamore based business began sponsoring Alfred K Brown school in Liberia in 2016. Children like Catherine, aged 12, note the difference that these meals make to their education. “I would like to be a Nurse to take care of sick people, I want to especially become a mid-wife,” she tells us. “I feel good about Mary’s Meals; the food gives me energy to learn.”

Nick McGowan, director of Lion.ie, is delighted that they can make a real impact in the lives of children living in poverty.

“We chose to sponsor a school instead of giving individual donations as we're in this for the long haul”, Nick tells us. “It's great to be able to see the faces of the students. It makes it more personal.  I won't lie though, seeing the sign in the school saying  "sponsored by lion.ie" makes us all proud too.

“Providing a quarter of a million meals so far is amazing. When we first started out, we struggled to feed a school for a year. As lion.ie has grown, thanks to the best customers in the world, we are now in a position where we can sponsor another school. We're looking forward to providing 500,000 meals in the next couple of years!”
