Jackie in Ethiopia

Jackie is visiting Ethiopia for 2 days at the invitation of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. The FAO runs the Purchase from Africans for Africa (PAA), a program that buys cereals and vegetables from local small-scale farmers to supply food to school feeding programs. FAO purchases food from 2,000 farmers which is redistributed to 8,000 students in seven primary schools. Jackie will meet some of the 1,334 students at Hanja Chefa Primary School, near Hawassa tomorrow.

Does he never rest? He does so much for the world. I hope he takes a vacation soon. He deserves one!
