Program Summary

Program Justification

  • Angola is recovering after 27 years of civil war.

  • Of 12 million plus Angolans, 70% live below the poverty line.

  • Health figures reveal that 31% of children under 5 are underweight and 45% of under 5 are stunted.

  • Only 40% of rural population has access to safe drinking water while only 16% has adequate sanitation facilities.

  • Primary school attendance is only 57% and over ½ of the country’s rural population has not received any formal schooling.

Government of Angola’s Commitment

  • National education strategy called: Education for All that guarantees access to education and integration boys, girls and young adults.

  • The Ministry of Education is currently establishing a national school-feeding program. The Angolan government has allocated $35 million for the first phase of this program.

    Partners

  • Ajuda De Desenvolvimento De Povo Para Povo (ADPP) – provide critical teacher training activities.

    • Train 1,500 new teachers that will be placed within the Ministry of Education system and within program target schools.

    • 850,000 people (including teachers, students, and parents) will also receive nutrition and health training.

  • JAM’s logistics:

    • A commodity manager and his team ensure that CSB is delivered in an efficient and timely fashion to 6 district warehouses and to 440 schools.

    • JAM staff inspect school kitchens and warehouses to make certain that children receive food regularly and that storage conditions are satisfactory.

  • Community Contribution:

    • Parents and teacher ensure that there are utensils, firewood and water to prepare food before distribution to the children.

    • Food is cooked according to local tastes and according to the number of children in attendance that day.

  • CSB is stored at the schools stacked in storerooms.

  • The Headmaster takes a head count of all children in attendance and determines amount of food to be cooked.

  • A community volunteer goes to the storeroom with a teacher and withdraws 100 grams of CSB per child. The Headmaster signs off on the food that is withdrawn.

  • The food is taken to the kitchen, mixed with potable water and cooked for about 15 minutes. The cereal is then ready to be served. Amount of CSB used and number of children fed is recorded.

All schools must meet basic requirements to qualify for the project. After JAM’s assessment, the Head of School works together with the PTA to ensure, for example, that there is a kitchen and storeroom; adequate water for food preparation; and people to make the food each day.

Some PTAs have organized the parents to deliver water from a nearby pump. At one school, the parents give their child water to take to school. One school has worked with three local churches to ensure a rota for people to make the food. Some PTAs have raised funds to pay for kitchen staff.
