The Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education (MBSSE) has initiated the planning of the school feeding program for the next academic year-2023/2024.
The Minister of MBSSE, David Moinina Sengeh noted that the feeding project is essential to the president in his transforming education agenda in the country.
He said the government is providing food for eight boarding schools as well as other opportunities in the education sector of Sierra Leone.
“School meals are essential to President Bio’s Transforming Education agenda. In addition to providing food for 8 boarding schools, and periodically supplying 15+ special needs institutions (outside of their yearly subvention), we’re feeding 748,000 kids nationwide through our partners. 85% of that comes from the GoSL basket! This is how we help support families as well. Today, we’re deep into planning for next year!” he stated.
