World Porridge Day
Thursday 10th October
Mary's Meals is celebrating World Porridge Day on Thursday.
The Scottish village of Carrbridge – home of the annual World Porridge Making Championship – has teamed up with the Scottish-based charity, Mary's Meals to establish an international World Porridge Day.
The charity, which operates its international headquarters from a tin shed in the Argyll area of the Scottish Highlands, has one simple aim: to provide a daily meal in a place of education so chronically poor children are attracted to the classroom where they can gain a basic education that can provide an escape route from poverty.
World Porridge Day aims to raise awareness of the role that porridge plays at Mary's Meals projects in Malawi, where a daily mug of maize-based 'likuni phala' is an incentive for children to go to school.
