PROMOTING ACCOUNTABILITY & TRANSPARENCY IN THE NATIONAL HOME GROWN SCHOOL FEEDING PROGRAM IN KADUNA STATE
Girl Child Concerns (GCC) is implementing an accountability and transparency project which is aimed at promoting accountability in the educational sector in Kaduna State through active monitoring of the Home Grown School Feeding Programme (HGSFP) in the state. The HGSFP is a joint social protection program of the federal government and State Governments. The HGSFP outcome of the tracking exercise will be shared with the leadership of Kaduna state and used to canvass improvement in transparency and accountability. This is particularly important in the current fiscal situation in the country and the Kaduna state government’s open acclamation of transparency and good governance
The overall goal of the project is to promote accountability practices and transparency in resource allocation, distribution and management in the home grown school feeding program in Kaduna State
To facilitate active participation of citizens and oversight of duty bearers and gatekeepers in ensuring the National Home Grown School Feeding program is properly executed and funds channeled to the program are judiciously utilized in Kaduna state.
To sensitize citizens about their service rights and responsibilities in education sector and provide them with strategy and access to demand accountability and good governance from service providers for the HGSFP.
To ensure provision of hygienic and healthy food in the schools in Kaduna state using home grown food by local farmers that will improve child nutrition.
Provide data and evidence to Kaduna state government to support them in improving monitoring and accountability in the use of public funds.
GCC is implementing the project in 70 primary schools under 6 LGAs (zaria, soba, kaduna north, kauru, chikun, kachia). It is a 3 year project 2018-2020
