By Twink Jones Gadama

In a move that is set to make a significant impact in the fight against hunger in Malawi, international school feeding charity Mary’s Meals has appointed Malawian jazz musician, Lawi, as their global ambassador. This announcement was made during a special unveiling ceremony held at the Amaryllis Hotel in Blantyre.

Mary’s Meals has been actively working to provide school meals to children in need, with their feeding programme reaching over one million children in over 1000 schools across the country. Despite their efforts, challenges such as the rising cost of food in Malawi have made it increasingly difficult to continue their work effectively.


Angela Chipeta-Khonje, the country director for Mary’s Meals, emphasized the importance of having Lawi as their global ambassador.

She highlighted the significance of having someone from Malawi represent the organization and share the story of the children they serve with the world.

During his acceptance speech, Lawi expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to serve as the global ambassador for Mary’s Meals.

He recognized the immense responsibility that comes with the role and emphasized the importance of collaboration and support in the fight against hunger.

Lawi stated, “Tonight it is not about me, but the millions of children that we are all committed to serve.

Feel free to reach out to me. I am going to be so much available knowing that I have a huge responsibility. We need you and your support.”

As the global ambassador for Mary’s Meals, Lawi will play a crucial role in raising awareness about the organization’s work and encouraging support from individuals and communities around the world.

His influence as a prominent figure in the Malawian music industry will undoubtedly help amplify Mary’s Meals’ message and reach a wider audience.

With Lawi on board as their global ambassador, Mary’s Meals is poised to make even greater strides in their mission to end world hunger and ensure that every child has access to nutritious meals.

The collaboration between Lawi and Mary’s Meals is a shining example of how individuals and organizations can come together to make a lasting impact on the lives of children in need.
