Summary of WFP assistance:

WFP focuses on supporting the Government with capacity development activities. The objective is for the government to acquire sufficient capacity to manage a national school feeding programme by gradually transferring responsibility for providing a daily hot meal to schoolchildren from the WFP programme to the government. During this gradual transfer, WFP continues to provide technical assistance to the Coordination Unit of the National School Feeding and Health Programme (PNASE) and the government.
