Dubai Cares convenes international partners to foster cross learning around School Feeding Programmes

Dubai Cares supported HGSF programme in Ethiopia

For the third consecutive year, Dubai Cares organized a two-day workshop, bringing together international partners under one umbrella in Dubai to exchange key learnings and best practices. This year, the focus was on Home Grown School Feeding (HGSF) programmes implemented in low and middle income countries and included countries such as Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Ghana and Palestine.

Speaking at the workshop, Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Cares said: “Cross learning is an integral part of Dubai Cares’ work. By convening international partners and major philanthropic stakeholders, we not only connect individuals who work in similar areas under different dynamics, but also give organizations and government officials a platform to present their success stories and progress in the area of school feeding, as well as school health and nutrition at large.”

Attendees at the workshop comprise representatives from international and local NGOs, UN agencies, government leaders, academic institutions as well as several industry experts from around the globe. Representatives from each country had the opportunity to highlight key learnings from the programme through individual presentations as well as through an interactive “market place” format, where participants interacted with each other on specified topics.
