Student Profile(s)

Irene Asare

“I am now approaching the end of this master course on food security. A three weeks module on project planning and the thesis project is all what is left to do. The module on “Agricultural development and food security” provided me with a more comprehensive understanding about food security. Not only food production should be considered, but also food accessibility and utilisation. After coming back to Ghana this will help me to consider much more topics than before with regard to the Ghana School Feeding Program (GSFP) I’m involved in. In the GSFP small farmers
are asked to produce foodstuff for the schools. This provides the children with nutritious food and at the same time the farmers a ready market, by which they can increase their income. From the modules on ‘Management, planning and development’, I have acquired the knowledge and skills that helps me to deal with challenges within an organisation involved in Food Security programs.”
