    Through its Children and Youth Strategy, DFATD works to strengthen and implement national protection frameworks to safeguard the rights of children and youth—particularly girls—who are at increased risk of violence, including as a result of child, early and forced marriage (CEFM). The strategy contributes to increasing girls’ access to basic education, which can help prevent CEFM.

    Canadian Leadership Helping Protect Children’s Futures in Iraq Today, the Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of International Development and Minister for La Francophonie, was joined by Anthony Lake, Executive Director of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), to announce Canada’s commitment to address the education and protection needs of conflict-affected children in Iraq. Minister Paradis made the announcement following a meeting with Mr. Lake and key Canadian stakeholders to discuss child education in emergencies. "The threat posed by ISIL is serious and far-reaching. The terrorist organization threatens national security and is wreaking havoc on the people of Iraq and surrounding countries, including their children, who are being denied the right to a childhood, an education, and even a future,” said Minister Paradis. "Canada’s leadership is ensuring that at-risk children are protected and able to keep learning even as they face the current conflict in their country and that no child is left behind." http://www.international.gc.ca/media/dev/news-communiques/2014/10/17a.aspx?lang=eng

    On World Food Day, we turn our attention to the millions of people around the world who don't have enough food to eat. This year's theme for World Food Day is "Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth." It highlights the important contribution family farming and smallholder farmers make to achieving sustainable food security and economic growth in developing countries. Sustainable agricultural development, with a focus on smallholder farmers, is an important aspect of Canada’s food security strategy. http://www.international.gc.ca/media/dev/news-communiques/2014/10/16a.aspx?lang=eng

    Local "model families" leading the way to better nutrition Nutritionist, Diane Baik, trains facilitators in Zambia on the implementation of a nutrition program based on the premise that in every community, despite the challenges of poverty, there are some families who are raising well-nourished children. Trained facilitators share with the community what these "model" families are doing differently and help them create nutritious meals. The program leads to sustained improvements in child nutrition and healthier families.

    For the Ponoka, Alberta growing project, like many growing projects, harvest time is about more than just bringing in a crop (in Ponoka's case, 165 acres of wheat). It's about coming together as a community and sharing what they have. (Doesn't that barbecue look fantastic?) On the eve of Thanksgiving weekend, we thank God for the spirit of growing project donors and volunteers across Canada willing to extend God's blessing to their neighbours around the world. We also give thanks for a supportive Canadian government Canada is Dedicated to International Development - DFATD for multiplying such gifts. (Also, check out this article from the Ponoka News: http://www.ponokanews.com/business/278537611.html)

    New: Canada Ships Personal Protective Equipment to Sierra Leone to Support Ebola Outbreak Response The Government of Canada is delivering its first shipment of personal protective equipment to help protect healthcare workers on the front line of the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone. The first shipment consists of 128,000 face shields which left Trenton, Ontario on a Department of National Defence Hercules Aircraft at 8 am this morning. The Public Health Agency of Canada recently offered to donate a range of personal protective equipment to the World Health Organization (WHO) to help with the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Following this offer, the WHO requested 300,000 face shields be delivered as soon as possible. The next shipment of face shields will be sent within the next week. More personal protective equipment will be sent, with priority given to what the WHO indicates is most urgently needed, both by air and by sea. The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) reminds Canadians that the risk of Ebola to Canadians remains very low. PHAC is more than ready to respond should a case of Ebola reach Canada. Canada is at the forefront of the Ebola response, and we are contributing funds, expertise, and equipment to the international efforts to fight this outbreak. We have also deployed two teams of medical experts on the ground working in our mobile lab in Sierra Leone. The Government of Canada continues to work with domestic and international partners to coordinate the shipment of remaining equipment offered from PHAC and Health Canada stockpiles. We will also continue to work with our provincial and territorial colleagues to provide further personal protective equipment to the WHO from provincial supplies and to prioritize the delivery of items that are most urgently required.

    It is World #Teacher Day.Today, we thank teachers worldwide. A good teacher can change the lives of hundreds of students. They help students develop critical thought, learn problem-solving, and make informed choices. In developing countries, well-equipped teachers can do even more. They can give children and youth the means to break out of poverty and to substantially improve their health and quality of life. #EducationFirst
