Malawi delegation Sep 2012
Hosting Malawi for the second time after their first visit to the Centre in March, we were delighted to welcome a high level delegation that included Eunice Kazembe, Minister of Education and Science and Technology, and Jermoth Ulema Chilapondwa, Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Food Security between 10th and 15th September. The ministers, accompanied by technicians and coordinators involved in Malawi´s school feeding and food security programmes as well as representatives from the WFP country office, came to Brasilia in order to build upon, and reaffirm their commitment to, the school feeding action plan devised in March. During their study visit the delegates were taken into the field to get first-hand experience with a programme of visits ranging across the supply chain from family farms, a farmers association and a cooperative to beneficiaries such as schools and a government-subsidised restaurant.
