School feeding Programme
UNICEF is assuring the Nigerian government of its continued support and intervention in giving better lives to the Nigerian child and woman. 
The chief field officer, UNICEF, Dr. Annefrida Kisesa says that the body is encouraged by the school feeding program for the Nigerian child.


The Chief Field Officer and coordination of the UNICEF, Dr Annefrida Kisesa said this when she led participants from 16 other states on a tour to assess the social protection programmes particularly, the school feeding initiative practiced in Osun state.
The UNICEF officials were divided into various groups with each visiting elementary schools to have a first hand and practical knowledge of how the initiative works in Osun state.
They were quick to observe the positive impact and student’s enrollment and academic performance.
The officials added that there is room for improvement even as they hope it is replicated in other states of the country.
The success of the social protection programmes includes employment generation, healthy children and economic buoyancy is the mandate of UNICEF.
Other states were drawn to participate in the programme, as UNICEF hopes that this will go a long way in helping them formulate policies on social interventions that can make a life for the Nigerian child better.
