Sub-Objectives& Interventions

Learning and change l.jpg
Learning and Change

Food must be complemented by other resources to improve educational quality & sustainability

FAE programs that use alternative delivery models are effective at reaching most vulnerable children

School feeding can prevent migration due to droughts (children stay in school b/c of availability of food)


Learning and change continued l.jpg
Learning and Change (continued)

Working with PTAs/communities has spill-over effects (civil society, social capital, political capital)

Preparing communities for “what comes next” is critical


Issues for further study l.jpg
Issues for Further Study

  • Are FAE programs an effective way to ensure access to education for children affected by HIV/AIDS? What complementary activities are most effective in reaching this group?

  • How are education indicators affected when school feeding ends? (How) have communities continued to support education when SF is withdrawn?

  • How have FAE programs helped to build social/political capital of communities?
