Nigeria, Maiduguri, Borno State, 13 March 2018  Calvin Apire is from the northern district of Kitgum in Uganda. He attended secondary school at St. Joseph’s College Layibi in nearby Gulu District, where between 1984 and 1986, he participated in the ‘School Garden Programme’, which was linked to the World Food Programme (WFP)’s school meals intervention.  As a member of the school’s Young Farmers Association, Calvin learned how to grow maize and beans to support the food needs of his school. WFP supplemented their efforts by providing additional nutritious foods, such as canned fish, chicken and beef, as well as powdered milk, sugar, and rice.  “Receiving nutritious food was a strong incentive for me to stay in school and focus on learning. It was only at school that I could get that standard of food,” says Calvin. “There are many children around the world that fail to pursue effective learning because they either don’t have anything or enough to eat.”  After completing secondary school, and at the onset of a decades-long conflict in northern Uganda, Calvin turned to small scale farming. To this day, he maintains a small farm that yields produce for his wife and three children. “When school feeding is well executed, it serves as an engine that positively drives the future of a country,” Calvin says.  In 2000 as the conflict intensified, and the need for humanitarian assistance in northern Uganda increased, Calvin’s earlier exposure to WFP’s school feeding programme fuelled his resolve to join the organization’s efforts. He started with WFP in October of that year, as a Procurement Assistant.  “There is nothing as exciting as working for the World Food Programme… I get to meet the people we serve and see how happy they are about what we do, which gives me all the satisfaction I need.”  “WFP’s school feeding programme also imbibed humanitarian values in me. I started to recognise the importance of giving hope to the vulnerable,” says Calvin who is currently Procurement Officer within the Supply Chain Unit at WFP in Nigeria.  Throughout the course of his career, he has supported the organization in buying food in emergency situations and has connected smallholder farmers with markets through Purchase for Progress (P4P) in countries including Liberia, Afghanistan, and South Africa, among many others. “I enjoy working in Supply Chain because I like seeing the effective and efficient movement of food assistance from the source to the beneficiaries,” says Calvin.  “I thank WFP for the impact the organization had in my life as a school child and for later giving me the opportunity to play a role in saving and changing lives. There is nothing as exciting as working for the World Food Programme… I get to meet the people we serve and see how happy they are about what we do, which gives me all the satisfaction I need,” says Calvin.

Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Bunyangula, North Kivu. 24 February 2018.  Home Grown School Feeding (HGSF) and Purchase for Progress (P4P) programmes are complementary interventions in approaching conflict and hunger in DRC.  HGSF focuses on reducing hunger and malnutrition triggered by unrest in schools of the Rutshuru territory.   Jointly implemented by WFP and FAO, P4P helps to increase sustainable agriculture for people returning to their village after years of displacements and armed conflict. Variable portion of food produced by P4P beneficiaries is bought by WFP and distributed to 27 000 children from schools supported by the Home Grown School Feeding programme.  In the Photo: Participants in a WFP supported "Purchase for Progress” (P4P) program in Bunynagula prepare maize for sale to WFP. Under P4P, WFP procures food for its Home Grown School Meals programme from local smallholder farmers, many of them women, in order to help strengthen the livelihoods of farmers and the local value chains.
