At Food Bridge vzw, our dedication to the Food Heritage Project goes beyond collaborating with rural farmers. We understand the vital connection between community development and the education of children within these communities. As such, we are committed to supporting the educational needs of children by providing essential assistance.

Recently, schools in the Manga district area reached out to us for support with their school feeding programs. Our focus not only encompasses conserving indigenous crops but also ensuring food security in these communities. Upon visiting these schools, our coordinator, Rebecca, witnessed the urgent need for assistance in sustaining these feeding programs and empowering the schools to thrive. So we want to help two schools - Akorkorma Siisi  D/A Basic School  (325 students) in Upper Manya District and Okwenya M/A Basic School with 300 students in the lower  Manya Krobo Municipal authority.

Both schools have expressed difficulties in procuring an adequate amount of food for student meals and have established farms to supplement what the government provides. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, we have developed a comprehensive approach to effectively address their needs. Our proposal involves enhancing the nutritional quality of the feeding program and providing essential resources such as seeds, farming tools, and training to enable the schools to cultivate their own food. By doing so, we aim not only to ensure the sustainability of their feeding programs but also to empower them to generate additional income by selling surplus harvests. 

The success of this initiative heavily relies on the generosity and support of individuals and organizations. Your partnership would not only help alleviate immediate hunger among school children but also lay the foundation for long-term resilience and self-sufficiency within these communities.

We are seeking financial assistance to buy organic seeds, wheelbarrows, farming equipment, and materials to kick-start this planting season and make a tangible difference in the lives of these children and their families. All contributions will directly impact the well-being and future prospects of the students.

We are committed to maintaining transparency and accountability throughout the project's duration. We will provide regular updates on the progress made and the impact achieved, ensuring that your donation is utilized effectively and efficiently.

Welcome to 2024! We appreciate your support throughout 2023, whether you were a partner, sponsor, or participant at our events. Your presence has been invaluable to us.

As we embrace the opportunities of the new year, our commitment remains steadfast in advocating for African food heritage andculture, African diaspora agrofood entrepreneurship and related themes. We recognize the pivotal role that African diaspora agrofood entrepreneurship can  play, in building sustainable agrofood systems in Africa and economic empowerment in their countries of origin. Thus we will work towards helping the entrepreneurs maximize their potentials.

In 2024, our core projects will center around mental health, African indigenous food systems, climate actions and African diaspora entrepreneurship. These initiatives will run concurrently with other projects developed in response to calls for proposals from various entities.

To kick off the year, we will analyze and present the findings of our sample survey on entrepreneurship and mental health. In the  spring of 2024, in collaboration with partners from academia, development agencies, international organizations, and governments, we will host an international conference that delves into the intersections of decolonization, diaspora, and the African food system. Later in the autumn, we invite you to join us for our annual African Diaspora Agrofood Forum, taking place from the 8th to the 10th of November 2024 at Tour and Taxis Brussels. In preparation for the forum, we will invite qualified candidates for the African Diaspora Agrofood Entrepreneur of the year 2024 and the compendium of African Diaspora Agrofood entrepreneurs. The 2023 edition can be downloaded here- https://diasporafordevelopment.eu/library/food-bridge-2023-compendium-of-african-diaspora-agrofood-entrepreneurs/

Partnership is the cornerstone of our work. If you are interested in collaborating on existing projects or wish to co-create new initiatives, please reach out to us to schedule a meeting. We are open to exploratory discussions and look forward to the possibilities that 2024 holds for collective impact. Thank you for being a part of our journey.
