The goal of this $33 million dollar program is to focus on institutionalization of school feeding and an enhanced transition to a national program with the following objectives: (1) build on school feeding commitment from the Government and support them to achieve 100 percent home-grown school feeding by 2030 through local procurement; (2) increase capacity building technical assistance to the Government to ensure sustainability of school feeding programs; (3) build on past achievements of previous McGovern-Dole projects and increase investment in literacy and WASH.
