Description and results

Description

The project aims to improve the learning capacity of 1.1 million Haitian children by providing them with a hot meal every school day during the school year. The project supports the school feeding program to help schoolage children suffering from chronic hunger and an insufficient diet. The program distributes meals to schoolchildren, thus helping to increase attendance at the primary school level and improve children’s learning capacity. The project also aims to strengthen local agricultural production by promoting the purchase of as much as 25 percent of the required rice supply from local producers. The project also helps to strengthen and ensure the sustainability of the National School Feeding Program of Haiti’s Ministry of National Education.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: (i) improved academic performance for girls and boys; and (ii) more effective and sustainable school feeding programs.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of the end of the project include: Canada’s contribution allowed to feed 625,328 children in 919 schools to be fed over a period of 165 days, and to buy 5,958 tonnes of rice, of which 14 percent was purchased from the local market. Eight producers’ associations (each with an average of 2,000 members) responded to the World Food Programme (WFP) tender for food supply in 2012. Support given to Haiti’s National School Feeding Program included : the development of an action plan and a legal framework for the program; and the provision of training for 60 managers from the program and the Ministry of National Education and Vocational Training. With Canada’s contribution and those of other international donors, the WFP achieved its objective for the 2012-2013 school year by providing meals to 1,109,158 children every school day. These results help reduce chronic hunger and malnutrition among schoolchildren, increase attendance at primary schools, and improve children’s learning capacity.
