Originally published



WFP Ghana aims to support the Government and communities to increase their capacity to promote sustainable food and nutrition security for Ghanaians at all times. This entails helping communities manage assets and structures that enable them to recover from shocks and enhance food security; building the Government’s capacity to manage a school feeding programme that benefits local farmers; supporting the Government to manage a nutrition programme that addresses short and long-term nutritional needs of the most vulnerable population including people living with HIV; and finally, support smallholder farmers with capacity development to gain increased incomes through improved agriculture value chain processes, through the Purchase for Progress activity (P4P). In 2015, WFP plans to support 350,000 beneficiaries through its operations. As a logistics hub, Ghana also hosts the United Nations Humanitarian Response Depot (UNHRD) and a Regional Logistics Fleet. Ghana also hosts Renewed Efforts against Child Hunger (REACH) initiatives. WFP has been present in Ghana since 1963.
