Guinea-Bissau,“Cudjogoro” school (Quinhamel region), November 2015  Through its Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation (PRRO 200526), initiated in March 2013, WFP assisted children aged 6-59 months with moderate acute malnutrition (MAM), children aged 6-23 months for the prevention of chronic malnutrition, people living with HIV (PLHIV) and tuberculosis (TB) under treatment, vulnerable, food insecure smallholder farmers, malnourished pregnant and lactating women (PLW) and primary school children. WFP provided girls from grades 4-6 with take-home rations as an extra incentive to improve their retention in schools. WFP assisted undernourished PLHIV on anti-retroviral therapy (ART) and tuberculosis clients on directly-observed treatment (TB-DOTS) to facilitate nutritional recovery and enhanced adherence to treatment. WFP also assisted food-insecure families of PLHIV and TB-DOTS clients with a family entitlement. In 2015, in support of the Government, WFP assisted vulnerable smallholder farmers to rehabilitate rice land through food-for-asset interventions to improve their food security status; WFP also piloted local purchases of food directly from smallholder farmers’ organizations.  The current PRRO was extended in time from January to 31 March 2016 to be followed by a Country Programme (2016-2020) approved by the ED at the board on February 9, 2016.  The CP will be aligned with the human development and agriculture pillars of the Guinea Bissau Government's strategic and operational plan and with human development and economic growth and poverty reduction pillars of the United Nations Strategic Cooperation Framework for Guinea-Bissau.

Guinea-Bissau, Pirada sector, Gabu region, October 2015  In Guinea-Bissau, poor educational attainment has been a significant barrier to economic development at local and national levels. Decades of political turmoil have caused chronic underinvestment in schools, leading to a severe shortage of teachers and resources. Although the average literacy rate among over-fifteen-year-olds has improved since 1979 when it was 20 percent, at 59.9 percent it remains low. Furthermore, there is a significant literacy gap between genders (males, 71.8 percent; females, 48.3 percent). Net enrolment, attendance and completion rates at primary school are extremely low, with disparities among regions.  WFP started the School Meals Programme in Guinea-Bissau in 2000, providing over 86,000 hot meals to school children, aiming to incentivize school enrolment and attendance. Take-home food rations for female students encourage girls to attend and remain in school. At the moment 12,240 girls are benefiting from take-home food rations. WFP is also working to strengthen the Government’s capacity to manage the school meals programme, facilitating the transition towards national ownership.

Guinea Bissau, 18 January 2012  Through the Gender Innovation Project, WFP Guinea-Bissau is supporting women’s farming associations in the regions of Bafata and Oio. In exchange for part of their fresh produce, which goes towards WFP school meals in 16 schools, WFP gives farming equipment to the women. In addition to generating income, the vegetables provided to the school about twice a week - including lettuce, onions, cabbages, carrots, peppers, cassava, and potatoes - make the meals of the children tastier and more nutritious. 5,000 children have received these nutritious meals and the project is estimated to have boosted the incomes of 1,600 women. This project is being implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Education, UNICEF, FAO, the Ministry of Agriculture and NGOs.   Another member of the association works in her field.
