School Feeding in The Gambia (2001-2010): A Mixed Method Impact Evaluation
This is the third of a series of evaluations of the impact of WFP school feeding. In the past ten years WFP school feeding has achieved its aim of supporting primary education by contributing to maintenance of good enrolment rates with gender parity achieved. School feeding’s contribution to attendance and improved learning could not be demonstrated. The school feeding programme had marked effects on nutrition and value transfers to households. The evaluation recommends areas for improvement including targeting and taking steps to transition to a government-owned programme.
