By Elkanah Nyauma


Giving back to the community is something that has existed for many centuries and we all know it. But with life moving so fast, it is easy to be caught up with the busy world and forget the important things that we do that make the world a place to adore, the things we must do.

Marcus Rashford, now 23 years, is a Manchester United and England footballer.

He has been providing free meals in England schools during holidays and giving support to low-income families, a thing that has led to big changes in government policy. 

Marcus was made an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in 2020. 

MBE stands for “Most Excellent Order of the British Empire” which is the British order of the noblemen, awarding contributions to works of charity, art, science, among other good contributions.
