Food for Knowledge (Mozambique)
„Food for Knowledge“ is among the programs implemented in the context of the McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition Program. The objective of the project is to improve the academic performance, nutrition and overall health of altogether 86,000 school children through the distribution of daily school meals in 270 selected primary schools.
The project supports the training of altogether 4,000 primary school teachers at the ADPP Teacher Training Colleges and provides each with intensive courses on nutrition and healthy eating habits. In order to ensure that the schools have the necessary facilities to prepare the daily school meals, the program also builds storerooms, kitchens, firewood saving stoves, wells, install water pumps and ensures that there are separate latrines for girls and boys at the schools.
