Improved Learning through better Health, Nutrition and Education for the School-Age Child.
Home Grown School Feeding (HGSF) programmes in Ghana can improve educational opportunities for children especially girls and also increase agricultural incomes for smallholder farmers.
These are some of the preliminary findings of a 3 year impact evaluation of the nutritional and agricultural benefits of the Ghana School Feeding Programme. The study collected data from over 5,500 school children and 4,500 farmers.
Initial analysis has found that target schools enjoyed increased enrollment and reduced adsenteeism rates. School girls in particular benefited from HGSF, with improvements observed in maths, literacy and cognition.
