Nicaragua, Jinotega, San Pedro, 14 September 2016  WFP supports sustainable development by improving the income of smallholder farmers, connecting them to local markets by leveraging WFP’s food demand and developing farmers’ agricultural production capacity and quality.   WFP’s Director of Gender, Kawinzi Muiu, visited the Cooperative Agricultural Services of Entrepreneur Women of San Pedro, Jinotega. They produce corn, rice and beans, and participated in a Purchase for Progress training designed to economically empower by improving their strategies of commercializing their products.   “Now I can know how much it costs me to produce, how much I spend and how much profit I make. I can have control over what I produce,” said Odili Alvarado – a farmer and mother of five children, who participated in the training. Being organized in farmers associations gives them better opportunities to improve production and sell their products.

In the photo: WFP’s Director of Gender, Kawinzi Muiu, visited a small, rural school in the northern mountains of Nicaragua. Her message to the children, teachers and families emphasized the importance of education and highlighted the role that school meals played in her own education.   “When I was a child I went to a school like this one, in my home country, Kenya…What helped me was to go to school. It was the main thing that allowed me to move on in life. Of the 8 girls that my mother had, who was a farmer at the time, all of us went to school…I was also given meals in school. And now I am Director of Gender at WFP. In the future you can also be teachers and doctors,” she said.  Photo: WFP/Sabrina Quezada Ardil

El Guineo, Nicaragua, 13 May 2013  WFP School Meals Program  El Guineo is a community in the province of Siuna, in the Nicaraguan Caribbean. Some 2,500 people, who are mostly farmers, live in this area with a humid tropical climate and a vulnerability to disasters. Although El Guineo is a key town to access the Nicaraguan Caribbean, it only acquired electricity 3 years ago and is still lacking paved roads. The biggest problem is the scarcity of drinking water in homes. Women must wakeup very early to go to the three community wells to fetch the water that they use for drinking and cooking.  In the photo: Sixth graders curiously look inside a container loaded with corn and beans that will be part of the school meals program, which are cooked by parents in the schools. This is the  second of three food deliveries;  WFP is providing vital technical support and advice to the Ministry of Education in the storage and preservation of food. More than 7,500 metric tons of food, including rice, beans, corn, fortified cereal, wheat flour and soybean oil, are being shipped to 10,000 public schools in Nicaragua. The government is investing more than US$7 million to guarantee students will receive a hot meal every day during the next three months.  The third and final delivery of food is scheduled for August 2013.  Photo: WFP/ Julissa Aguilar

Andrea has been working for the school for just over a year. Since then she has continued every day to prepare food Nicaragua, for 234 elementary students.

In addition, some have to walk two hours to get to school in the morning and as a result arrive tired and hungry. The School Meals Program, which is run in collaboration with WFP and the Government of Nicaragua, helps the pupils fill their stomachs during the day and thus perform at a higher level.

El Guineo, Nicaragua, 18 April  Apolonia Montano is a single mother of forty-four who washes clothes in the river to support her five children.
