    Strengthening Capacities to Operate Government-Led Home-Grown School Food Initiatives in Ethiopia and Senegal - GCP/GLO/775/ITA 2022
    Also available in:

    Home Grown School Feeding (HGSF) is a school feeding model that provides children in schools with safe, diverse and nutritious food sourced locally from smallholders. The benefits of HGSF go beyond education and nutrition to tackle livelihoods of smallholder farmers and local communities. However, building links between school feeding programmes and local and smallholder agriculture production requires adjustments and reforms at institutional, policy and regulatory levels. This includes the alignment of public procurement laws, regulations and related practices. Against this background, building on the previous experience of the Purchase from Africans for Africa (PAA Africa) programme designed and implemented by FAO and the World Food Programme (WFP) to support HGSF, the project aimed to enhance the technical capacity of the governments of Ethiopia and Senegal to operate their current HGSF initiatives. The project also provided additional options for decision making on supply chain and business models, operational modalities, adapted procurement regulatory frameworks and contractual options, for an inclusive public procurement of a diversified school food basket.

    The first live broadcast Learning Route “Successful practices, tools and mechanisms to design, implement and monitor Home-Grown School Feeding (HGSF) programmes in Africa” jointly promoted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and Procasur took place from the 7th to the 12th of December 2020 in Kenya. Twenty-two government officials and decision-makers attended this Learning Route; amongst them: seven (07) Kenyan government officials travelled from Nairobi to Busia and Siaya Counties to visit and share knowledge with local HGSF initiatives, such as: the BFN Project developed in Busia and the Nyamninia Primary school in Siaya County. The remaining fifteen participants from selected African countries (Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana, Lesotho, Rwanda and Uganda) experienced the same learning journey on a virtual modality through live broadcast connections and direct interactions with key actors in the field. Kenya thanks to its well-established HGSF model was an inspiring host, showcasing the differentiated approaches and strategies developed at national level to facilitate small farmers’ inclusion in the school meals. The “direct cash transfers to school” as a food procurement mechanism, the multisectoral and multi-actors engagement, the nutritional and biodiverse provision of school meals are some of the innovations analyzed during the Learning Route. This compendium presents main lessons learned, key innovations and good practices of each case analyzed during the learning route.

This final report presents main lessons extracted during the case analysis workshops as well as innovative solutions that participating African Governments intend to adopt and scale-up in their respective countries as a follow-up of their participation to the learning route.
