WFP activities in Khammouane province, Laos - Food for work in action
Lao People'S Democratic Republic, June 2007
WFP Food for Work programme: this project works in food insecure districts identified by WFP's Vulnerability Analysis and Mapping.
Beneficiaries receive rice as payment for building assets of their choice. The quantity provided is based on the amount of work achieved. To make villagers more aware of their entitlements, beneficiary boards with the amount of rice to be
received after completion of work are placed at the sites. Villagers are also encouraged to be more active in the distribution of the rice to the village to ensure that they receive the correct amounts. Every participant of FFW is given a rice receipt card to document the amount received.
