Bobby Hendry oversees meal planning, hygiene, and procedures for the Food for People (FFP) program. He recently visited the kitchen facility in Otinibi, Ghana and logged this report.

One of my main goals for this trip is to evaluate a request by a local school to expand the FFP program to include its students.
Parents, school staff, and the new Chief of Otinibi, Nii Kweidza Mansa III, the son of the late Chief, have all requested that the facility please feed the children.Our team meets with Headmistress Zenabu Iddrisu and School Manager Mohammed Aminu Ali. We learn from them that approximately 110 disadvantaged kids and orphans now go to the school.
It is called the “Aisha Bint Khalifa Arabic and English School” and we are informed that it serves children of both Muslim and Christian faiths.
