The three day celebrations which were attended by more than 300 delegates from
Delegates from across the continent are gathered in the Zimbabwean capital, Harare, this week to commemorate the 3rd Africa Day of School Feeding, to realize full potential in school children.
The conference which is running under the theme, Realising The African Child’s Full Potential Through Effective Home Grown School Feeding, aims at touching the lives of nearly 60 million children on the continent. The celebration will advocate school feeding for the
benefit of the most vulnerable students and
communities at large, calling on all agencies and
persons involved in these programmes. The theme
chosen by the African Union for 2018 incorporates
the governance dimension of home grown school
feeding (HGSF), from production to consumption, in
a multi-sectoral approach. In addition, it galvanizes
the efforts of private-public partnerships (PPP) to
improve the efficiency of HGSF programmes in a
value chains approach. In doing so, it captures
partners’ and stakeholders’ engagement for quality
delivery of the programmes so as to enhance the
full potential of African children.
WFP joins this initiative and with FAO and IFAD is
organizing an event in Rome to celebrate school
feeding in Africa.
