Ms Nada Al Hajjri, the Country Programmes Manager of Dubai Cares, a philanthropic organization working to improve children's access to quality primary education in developing countries, has paid a five-day working visit to Ghana.

Ms Al Hajjri was in the country to gain a firsthand information and experience of the activities implemented by the Partnership for Child Development (PCD) with Dubai Cares funds.

The PCD with funding from Dubai Cares is supporting the Ghana School Feeding Programme (GSFP) through the implementation of a Comprehensive School Health and Nutrition Project which seeks to improve the nutritional value of the school meals and even at household levels promote higher educational outcomes.

Interacting with the GSFP management and stakeholders including, beneficiary school children, teachers, caterers and community members, Ms Al Hajjri said Dubai Cares was committed to support the underprivileged.

She lauded the Ghana government’s commitment towards the GSFP but was concerned about the delayed in payment to the caterers.

She appealed to government to treat the payment to caterers as a priority, since without regular payment to them, they were bound to compromise on the quality and quantity of the school meals.

Ms Al Hajjri expressed satisfaction with PCD’s work, and hoped that the outcome of the impact evaluation exercise being carried out by PCD on the GSFP would help strategize the way forward.
