Benin, May 2011  Benin is one of the smallest countries in West Africa. It's economy is highly dependent on subsistence agriculture, cotton production and regional trade. WFP has been providing food assistance in Benin since 1964 to save lives, improve the health and nutrition of children, women and vulnerable groups, promote access to education and reduce the gender gap. In response to the food price crisis, WFP provided food assistance for the families of 20,190 schoolchildren in severely affected areas, covering 71,000 beneficiaries. WFP also assisted 128,000 malnourished children under 5 and 30,000 pregnant and lactating women in the northern department of Atacora, 1,000 farmers in Alibori department and 1,500 low-income urban workers. These activities have enhanced the resilience of food- insecure communities, prevented deterioration of the nutrition status in those communities, and reduced the risk of children dropping out of school. WFP school feeding projects have contributed to improving access, attendance, completion and gender equality in primary schools.   Photo: WFP/Rein Skullerud

Benin, Zou, Agbangnizoun village, Sohoué Dovota School, May 2011 
WFP school feeding projects have contributed to improving access, attendance, completion and gender equality in primary schools. Under the Strategic Framework for Poverty Alleviation the goal is to support the Government’s strategy for achieving universal primary education by 2015. 
WFP will continue to support schools, but in fewer districts, to improve educational performance and enable the Government to consolidate its capacity for managing an expanded school feeding programme. In schools new to the project, parental support will be sought for a school feeding management committee, storage, kitchen and dining facilities and food handling. WFP will engage with partners to define the roles of the committee and ensure that they are trained and include at least two women in decision-making positions. From the outset, WFP will emphasize that its school feeding assistance is time-bound. WFP and its partners will contract partners to use radios and other media for raising awareness of the importance of school feeding as a community-owned initiative under continued government support. As part of its hand-over, WFP will work with communities to facilitate purchases of locally produced food through farmers’ organizations on the basis of the home-grown school feeding model. WFP will help to connect farmers with markets supported by school feeding.

Benin,  Zagnando, October 2010  The 2010 flooding is the worst the country has experienced in a century. The floods have hit more than 680,000 people in 55 of the country’s 77 municipalities. The first food distributions targeted around 50,000 flood victims, and WFP is drawing up longer-term plans to help hundreds of thousands more people over the coming months which will help households rebuild their livelihoods, meet essential needs and resume economic activities in the affected communities, using schemes such as Food for Work and Cash for Work.  One girl from the nearby village of makeshift shelters and UNHCR tents along the road is happy to receive her ration of maize to bring back to her family. Beneficiaries received full family rations with a food basket consisting of maize, beans, vegetable oil and salt with children under 5 receiving a supplementary ration of CSB, oil and sugar.

Eugénie Gnammou from the commune of Cobly in northern Benin was one of the many beneficiaries of Benin CO’s EMOP response to flooding. Due to poor irrigation and soil in the region, she said that not only was her home washed away in the floods, but her family had also lost all of their livestock, small animals and the seedlings they had planted. When talking with WFP staff monitoring the distribution, she continued to express her gratitude for the assistance, ‘Thank you World Food Programme. You have not just helped us; you have saved me, my family and my community.’  Photo: WFP/Katie Fackler
