Food for Assets, School Meals

The World Food Programme works with governments across Asia to design and manage large-scale, innovative programmes, focused on those who need them most. These programmes are often called ‘safety nets’ – projects designed to protect the most vulnerable at critical times, and so allow them to make the most of each new opportunity to improve their lives.

Commissioned by WFP’s Executive Board when approving the Policy, this early evaluation assessed: the quality of the Policy itself; results so far; and the factors influencing these results/progress in implementation.

The Policy was timely, relevant and introduced some important new elements, based on sound principles. There are many positive features in implementation so far, but not as much tangible progress as might have been hoped, due to inherent weaknesses in the Policy and slow implementation of the necessary changes to WFP systems, incentives and procedures.

The world Food Programme is honored to assist the Ministry of Education through its School Feeding Programme, benefiting some 36,000 students in over 220 schools. Although much has been achieved, there remain many challenges ahead. Donors and the World Food Programme can still make difference and assist Bhutan in achieving one of the Millennium Development Goals by 2015: Education for All.
