Description and results


This project aims to reduce hunger and malnutrition towards children and to increase the enrolment rate, especially girl, in Haiti. It also aims to stimulate the local economy in a sustainable way by purchasing local food from women producers and entrepreneurs, allowing them to seize more opportunities to contribute to their own economic success and their communities. The activities of the project include: (1) offer daily nutritious meals to 180 000 school-aged children to increase their attendance and their academic achievement; (2) offer economic opportunities for women in rural areas through local purchasing.

Expected results

The expected results of this project include: (1) Reducing chronic hunger for school-aged children; (2) increasing primary school attendance and academic achievement rates (particularly for girls); (3) stimulation of economic growth of communities, especially of women.
