Parent Engagement Lays Foundations For Nutrition & Education

Parents in the North West Province have been tilling school gardens in preparation for the planting season in Cameroon. This element of the Nascent/McGovern Dole Food For Education Program illustrates the increasing commitment and ownership local parents and community members are taking in the nutrition and education of their children.

Despite political turmoil that has shuttered schools in the North West, the dedication of our beneficiary communities is been undimmed and their eagerness to assure the good health and well-being of their children demonstrated by their contributions of labor for school gardens and their attendance of best farming practices seminars. These Parent Teacher Associations continue to be essential partners as Nascent/MGD strive to find the best means to assist in the education and nutrition of local children while the schools are closed.
