PFS is proud to partner with Mastercard and the World Food Programme (WFP) to provide school meals to hungry children in Mali


Help Us Reach Our Target of 200,000 Meals

Mali is one of the poorest countries in the world and also one of the hottest places on Earth. Over 50% of the population live on less than $1.25 a day. As a result, chronic food insecurity and malnutrition are very serious and stressful issues for families, especially those with school-aged children.

More Than a School Meal - a Chance for a Better Life

Each new PFS prepaid card will provide 20 school meals through the World Food Programme. This includes a matching donation from Mastercard of 10 meals and applies to every new PFS prepaid card issued between Friday, December 1st, 2017 and Saturday, March 31st, 2018 up to a maximum of 200,000 meals.

While this campaign means a lot to us, the initiative could mean the world to those who are most in need

For many schoolchildren, WFP's Home Grown School Feeding programme may provide the only nutritious meal that they get to eat all day. Unfortunately, 1 in every 3 children under the age of 5 in Mali has stunted growth. In a country where one in eight primary-school aged children do not attend class, school meals encourage families to keep their children in school. As much as possible, meals are sourced from nearby farms to help the local economy.
