Girls access to education with school canteens in Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso

Titre : Girls access to education with school canteens in Burkina Faso

Numéro de projet : CA-3-P009449001

Pays/Région : Burkina Faso

Début-Fin : 2020-10-19 // 2021-12-31

Description
This project aims to offer school feeding activities to help systematically eliminate barriers related to educating students, especially girls, in high-priority regions of Burkina Faso, namely, Sahel, Boucle du Mouhoun, Nord, Centre-Nord and Est. This project works to improve access, retention, gender equality, equity and protection of children, particularly for girls. The project implements regular school feeding programs, as well as emergency school feeding programs to meet the growing needs of thousands of displaced persons and their host communities. The project also aims to distribute 3,300 tons of food to 60,000 students, mainly girls, to provide them with a hot meal. In addition, the project aims to serve breakfast in the morning with take-out rations to nearly 5,000 girls. The provision of take-home rations is intended to encourage parents to keep their daughters in school until the end of primary school, reducing, among other things, the risk of early marriage and pregnancy.
