Food For Education Brief

We recently completed a great visit to the McGovern-Dole/ALIGN project. The USDA team of Alessandra S. McCormack and Rich Higgins II, both of USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service were positively impressed with our progress; particularly since the school year in our region of implementation was partially interrupted by a teachers’ strike beginning in November 2016. The USDA team, supported by Dr. Derrin R. Smith, Deputy Chief of the Political-Economic Section,and Mihaela Biliovschi-Smith, Executive Assistant Media at the US Embassy in Yaounde, expressed great satisfaction at seeing that implementation continued apace during the strike period. Watch a video summary of the project below.
