Welcome to HGSF-Global.org/kenya
The Government of Kenya is demonstrating leadership in the field of Home Grown School Feeding and has developed two different HGSF models namely Njaa Marufuku Kenya – MoA lead NMK (“Eradication Hunger in Kenya”) and Home Grown School Meals MoE lead– (HGSM). Past experience shows that the key to success, scale up and sustainability of school health and nutrition programmes has been the development of a multisectoral understanding, especially between education and health.
Given the clear opportunity for collaboration and the engagement from all key partners in Kenya,The HGSF technical development plan in Kenya was developed by engaging different stakeholders working across the traditional disciplines of agriculture, education, health and nutrition.
The Global Child Nutrition Foundation held its 9th Annual "A Possible Dream" gala at the Ronald Reagan Building.
The evening honored champion of global nutrition Ambassador Tony P. Hall, executive director of the Alliance to End Hunger.
The gala raises awareness of global hunger and helps the GCNF build sustainable school feeding programs in developing countries.
