The US backs school canteen program in Togo

(Togo First) - The US Department of Agriculture has donated more than 600 tons of rice, bulgur, oil, lentils, and soybeans to Togo, in support of its school canteen program. The foodstuff, destined for around 66,000 Togolese students, was secured through the Catholic Relief Services, a humanitarian organization active in more than 30 African countries. 

The donation is the first of many which should follow as part of a 5-year aid program. 

Togo’s school canteen program aims at fighting poverty and improving young student’s learning capacities. It is financed by the government and the world bank and executed by the national agency for grassroots development (ANADEB). 

So far, this food program has helped provide over 30 million warm meals to 314 public primary schools.

Should we encourage young togolese toward agriculture?
