Precarious situation in the Sahel, urgent action needed to face the lean season
The endogenous canteen project is part of the food-based social safety net programme, and involves the community taking charge of feeding pupils locally. The parents’ food (or financial) contribution makes it possible to continue to feed the children at school for at least an extra two months a year, thus helping to keep the pupils in school and improve their nutritional health and academic performance.
