School Meals In Armenia Supports Entire Community

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.

Overview

The main humanitarian concern for the Government of Armenia is the poverty that continues to impact one third of the population.

While economic growth remained robust in 2005, the sustainability of such growth over the long-run is not assured.
