Supporting education and nutrition
While one of the region’s more stable countries, Senegal remains a low-income, food-deficit nation with malnutrition rates as high as 26 percent in children under the age of five. Counterpart works to create a food secure environment for children through its Food for Education and Local and Regional Food Aid Procurement projects.
Both projects support the overarching goal of ensuring that school management committees can serve as a sustainable pathway to community-led school feeding, even after the projects are complete.
The programs work directly with parents, schools, community members, and government agencies to improve school attendance, dietary practices and local engagement through improved nutrition, health practices and education.
Counterpart has implemented food security projects in Senegal since 2008.
