Mastercard and Glovo Partner to Launch School Feeding Program in Kenya and Nigeria

Mastercard and Glovo, a leading app connecting users with diverse services, have joined forces to combat hunger and support education in underserved communities across Kenya and Nigeria.

This innovative partnership aims to provide over 300,000 nutritious meals to school children throughout the academic year, addressing food insecurity, malnutrition, and educational barriers.

Driven by a shared commitment to social responsibility, Mastercard and Glovo have identified hunger as a critical challenge impeding children’s learning and overall well-being.

The program focuses on ensuring access to nutritious meals, fostering a positive learning environment, and promoting equitable prosperity in the region.

To achieve maximum impact, Mastercard has partnered with established local charities: Food4Education in Kenya and the Lagos Food Bank initiative in Nigeria.

Every transaction made on the Glovo app using a Mastercard will contribute to these charities, directly funding meals for children in need.

This unique initiative marks a first-of-its-kind effort in both East and West Africa, embodying Mastercard’s commitment to sustainable solutions that benefit communities, the environment, and overall prosperity.

Shehryar Ali, Senior Vice President and Country Manager for East Africa and Indian Ocean Islands at Mastercard, stated:

“This collaboration with Glovo exemplifies our aim to seamlessly foster positive impact. By providing nutritious meals to school children, we can eradicate hunger and create an environment conducive to effective learning.”

Caroline Mutuku, General Manager of Kenya at Glovo, emphasized:

“We believe positive change starts locally. Our partnership with Mastercard tackles the crucial challenge of hunger and promotes equitable prosperity in Kenya and Nigeria. We understand that collective action is key, and we hope to inspire others to join similar initiatives.”
