Improved Nutrition for Pre-School Children in Lesotho

Community Cooperation

Women in the district of Berea have come together to improve the lives of young children by opening an Early Childhood and Development Centre, supported by WFP.   

Improving Nutrition

As part of WFP's Country Programme, Early Childhood Development Centres are provided with a variety of foods to improve the health and well-being of the children attending them. 

Increased Attendance

Pre-primary school enrolment has increased with WFP food support,  ensuring that children are better prepared for primary education.

Healthy Children

Through its Positive Deviance programme, WFP works to identify innovative local solutions to problematic issues...such as this simple sanitation project which promotes hand washing.


Full Tummies

WFP supports 50,000 children in Early Childhood Care and Development centres throughout Lesotho. 

Inquiring Minds

Breakfasts provided by WFP ensure that children have the nutrition and energy required to do well at school.  

WFP supports 50,000 pre-school children throughout Lesotho with a view to ensuring they are well nourished and that school attendance is boosted.
