The Aliko Dangote Foundation (ADF) says governments at all levels and private sector players should invest more resources in ensuring access to clean water.
Alhaji Aliko Dangote, the Chief Executive Officer, Dangote Group, has pledged his commitment to the development of education and healthcare sector, as he bagged the Ahmadu Bello University’s top Corporate Award.
The Dangote Foundation, on Wednesday, said it would commit N36 billion to implement its malnutrition intervention plan in Nigeria from January 2018.
The Aliko Dangote Foundation will invest US$100 Million over five years to tackle malnutrition in the North East and North West, the worst-affected parts of Nigeria.
The recently concluded Global Nutrition Summit 2017, held in Milan, Italy, convened governments, international agencies, foundations, civil society organisations and businesses to accelerate the global response to malnutrition, an underlying cause of nearly half of all global child deaths.
Aliko Dangote, chairman of Dangote group and Africa’s richest man, says he plans to reach out to 1 million malnourished children in Nigeria by 2021.
