WFD in Suriname

Suriname - 16/10/2016

The Japan-Caribbean Climate Change Partnership recently partnered with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to celebrate World Food Day (WFD) which carried a theme this year of ‘Climate is changing. Food and agriculture must too.’ In Suriname, a drawing competition was held at the J. T. H.  Wenzelschool (Primary School) in Paramaribo. Sixty students from the Fifth and Sixth grade were invited to take part in the competition, creating drawings or paintings relating to the WFD 2016 theme. In addition to prizes given to 1st, 2nd and 3rd placed students, the school was also presented with two fruit plants by the Ministry; Minister Ir. Soeresh Algoe assisted students with planting the trees. Members of the WFD Working Group also presented vegetables to the school.
