Togo: Nearly XOF20 billion spent in school feeding since 2008

(Togo First) - From 2008 to date, school feeding in Togo cost XOF19.7 billion. The information comes from the summary of the ministers’ council held last Wednesday.

The funds were invested in the school canteens project which is co-financed by the World Bank (XOF13.7 billion) and the Togolese government (XOF6 billion). This project falls under a larger scheme known as the Social nets and community development programme (PDC Plus).

The school canteens project recorded a “remarkable success”, according to authorities, helping “feed 25% of pupils living in the country’s most vulnerable areas.” Yet, challenges remain and at the recent ministers’ council, officials stressed on the need to secure more funds to establish a legal framework that would ensure an efficient monitoring of the initiative.
