Titre : Development projects – Chad. Support to Primary Education and Enrolment of Girls (Chad)

Pays : Tchad

Durée : 1 January 2012–31 December 2013

Présentation
This school feeding project will assist the Government in achieving MDGs 1 and 2, helping to put in place a system providing high-quality education for all by 2020. It is linked to Priority 1 of WFP’s Enabling Development policy – Invest in human capital through education and training, as well as to WFP Strategic Objectives 4 – Reduce chronic hunger and undernutrition, and 5 – Strengthen the capacities of countries to reduce hunger, including through hand-over strategies and local purchase.

The expected outcomes in the targeted schools are :  improved enrolment rates for children from vulnerable rural households ;  improved attendance rates ;  improved primary school completion rates, particularly for girls ; and  strengthened government capacity to manage the school feeding programme.

During implementation of the project, WFP will assist the Government in formulating its national school feeding policy and strategy, as well as in developing a supplemental operational plan to ensure ownership of the programme and gradual hand-over of responsibilities to the Government.

Bénéficiaires
The project will be implemented in the areas most at risk of food insecurity and with a gross enrolment rate lower than the national average (98 percent),2 and weighted average in the Sahelian belt (65 percent). The areas located in the Sahel include the regions of Barh-El-Gazal, Batha, Guera, Kanem, Ouaddai, Salamat, Sila and Wadi-fira. In all, 790 schools are included in the project on the basis of the recommendations formulated by the 2010 mission carried out by WFP, MEN and UNICEF. The project will target 205,000 students in 2012. An increase of 5 percent in student enrolment at these schools is expected, bringing the total number of students to 216,000 in 2013. The families of girls in CM1 and CM2 (47,000 in 2012 and 49,000 in 2013) will receive dry take-home rations.
