This bridge was built thanks to a food-for-work activity WFP implemented as part of its school meals projects. The project helped the community replace an old bridge that was a daily threat to children on their way to school. Copyright: WFP/Abeer Etefa
WFP is implementing in Armenia – in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Science – a school meals project for 50,000 primary school children in seven out of Armenia’s eleven administrative districts. The project’s goal is to support the establishment of a sustainable national school meals programme that is part of national policies and budgets. WFP plans to hand over the management of the project to the government in 2016.
