Community Engagement In Children’s Nutrition

With the planting season just around the corner in March; parents and community members across Bui Division in Cameroon have been preparing and expanding school gardens for the coming growing season as part of the McGovern Dole Food For Education Program implemented by Nascent Solutions. 92 Participating schools and their PTA’s will receive training  from Nascent/MGD field workers on best sustainable farming practices as they move progressively towards autonomous management of the school farms to supplement the school feeding program. These parents and local communities that often struggle to make ends meet and feed their children have been committed partners in improving the lives of their children through education and better nutrition. While political and social unrest are currently prevent regular school sessions in parts of Cameroon, affected communities continue their dedication to the education and nutrition of their children, by enrolling in large numbers for the mobile libraries we provide and doing their part to supplement the nourishment of their kids by tending MGD/ALIGN gardens.
