Integrated School Feeding and Literacy Program

​The World Food Program launched a new project to increase the availability and quality of school meals for 150,000 student beneficiaries over the five year implementation period. The project is funded by the McGovern-Dole FY 2015 program of USDA. Project districts include Cavally Region, Bafing Region, Bagoue, Poro, and Tcholongo Region, and Bounkani and Gontougo Region. AVSI’s goal is to improve the quality of education received by children through an integrated set of literacy promotion activities. Together with the Ministry of Education (MENET), AVSI intends to review existing curricula and support the revision process currently underway, and to coordinate a collaborative effort to bring together pedagogical resources for reading instruction. AVSI will guide the implementation of reading assessment of students in project schools, support the MENET in training teachers in the reading curriculum and focus on the involvement of the whole community.
