World Food Day, Children’s Competition

Thank you to all those who submitted entries as part of the World Food Day children's competition! Submissions are now closed. Stay tuned for the announcement of the winning entries in January 2023.

Ahead of world food day, Vi Agroforestry is launching a children’s campaign on our social media platforms.

If you are aged 8 -14 years, we would love to hear from you!

The children’s competition aims to sensitise children on agroforestry practices and how they can grow “Safer food, for better health”. Based on this year’s World Food Day theme we are leaving no one behind!

This campaign will see us launch our latest SALM children’s book through the eyes of the children which promotes the concepts of Agroforestry as well as encourages children to play their roles, in the adoption of agroforestry and environmental conservation.

Challenge: write an essay, draw or record a video (song or poem) telling us what you envision to be healthy/nutritious food, agroforestry, or climate change.

Take a photo or scan your poster and submit your entry to

The challenge will be open specifically to children in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda countries where we operate and in either English or Swahili.

Children living with special needs are highly encouraged to apply.

Participation is free of charge.

Only one entry should be submitted per person. Multiple entries from one person will result in disqualification.

All work presented must be original. 

All participants are encouraged to read about the World Food Day theme and the children’s SALM booklet through the eyes of the children . Younger children may want to learn together with a parent or teacher.

The deadline for entries is  10th October 2022.

Three winners in various categories will be selected by our jury and announced here on 20th October 2022. Winners will be promoted in the Vi Agroforestry social media pages and its East Africa offices and Sweden and will also receive a surprise gift bag and Certificate of Recognition.
