Food For Education - WFP Country Programme
Brief Project Description
Country Programme Mozambique 10446.0 (2007–2009) The WFP Country Programme was prepared in line with the United Nations Development Assistance Framework for 2007–2009, which was based on the Government of Mozambique’s Poverty Reduction Strategic Plan (PARPA II). The strategic objective of the Country Programme is to strengthen national capacity to respond to the triple threat of food insecurity, HIV/AIDS and insufficient government capacity to meet basic social needs. The Country Programme was developed with two primary foci: 1) human capital development through school feeding to improve participation in primary education; and 2) social safety nets for orphans and vulnerable children. In 2007, the social safety net activities were assumed under WFP's parallel Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation (PRRO), so the Country Programme now focuses exclusively on school feeding, or “Food for Education”, activities. WFP’s Food for Education activities include day school feeding, take-home rations for orphans and girls, boarding school feeding (to be transferred to GoM responsibility by the end of 2009) and support for the Government in developing and managing a national school feeding programme. The Country Programme targets primary and secondary school children, with special attention to orphans, vulnerable children and girls. WFP Food for Education activities benefit around 300,000 students, teachers and parent volunteers in all 10 provinces. All activities are carried out through a direct partnership with the Ministry of Education and Culture and supported, in part, by joint programmes with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). WFP integrates its activities into existing and emerging national programmes, which increases opportunities to support sustainable strengthening of government capacity and strengthening national ownership. The Country Programme is in line with WFP’s Enhanced Commitments to Women and primarily contributes to Millennium Development Goals 1, 2 and 3. The Country Programme budget is a total value of US$41.9 million over three years. It is based on expected pledges and contributions from donor governments.
