Ed­u­ca­tion was an af­ter­thought as the boys’ fo­cus was on their gar­den, but when Mary’s Meals started feed­ing in their school, that changed. The char­ity was a life­line. As a re­sult of the daily food pro­vided, the twins are now flour­ish­ing and plan­ning for their fu­ture.

De­spite still work­ing long hours, An­thony and Ag­grey go to school ev­ery day, where they re­ceive a mug of por­ridge sup­plied by Mary’s Meals. The food gives them strength to work hard and as a re­sult of at­tend­ing as much as pos­si­ble, they are do­ing well at school.

An­thony said, “Ev­ery­thing is great. My brother and I are re­ally work­ing hard to en­sure our dreams are met.

“I am do­ing very good with my stud­ies. My teach­ers keep en­cour­ag­ing me to study hard. In our last ex­ams, I at­tained 349 marks out of 500. I was the best boy in my class. In the next ex­ams I am tar­get­ing 400 marks. I am re­ally work­ing hard to­wards my goal, to score 450 marks in my na­tional ex­am­i­na­tion.”

Ag­grey added, “Mary’s Meals school feed­ing pro­gramme re­mains one of the best ini­tia­tives to be in­tro­duced at St Mary’s Pri­mary School. It is one of the things that made my brother and I choose to re­peat in this school rather than neigh­bour­ing schools, plus it has made St Mary’s one of the best per­form­ing schools in aca­demics. We can rest as­sured that our lunch is go­ing to be catered for and this will give us more room to study and more en­ergy to con­cen­trate even bet­ter in class.”

“For me I would like to say thank you to Mary’s Meals for re­mem­ber­ing chil­dren from un­der­priv­i­leged fam­i­lies like us,” said An­thony.
