Opportunités de carrière : School Feeding Associate G6- Karene (830208)

WFP celebrates and embraces diversity. It is committed to the principle of equal employment opportunity for all its employees and encourages qualified candidates to apply irrespective of race, colour, national origin, ethnic or social background, genetic information, gender, gender identity and/or expression, sexual orientation, religion or belief, HIV status or disability.

The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.

The World Food Programme (WFP) has been present in Sierra Leone since 1968. It supports the Government through a range of integrated life-saving and resilience-building activities.

One of the activities is serving as a key implementing partner of the National School Feeding Programme, under the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education (MBSSE). School Feeding programmes are used in many countries to incentivize education, improve health outcomes and serve as a social protection mechanism. WFP provides daily school feeding in 5 districts across the country, covering over 1,000 schools and approximately 240,000 beneficiaries. To expand the benefits associated with school feeding, in select schools, WFP is undertaking a Home-Grown School Feeding approach, based on local procurement from smallholder farmers.

In October 2023, WFP received multi-year funding from BMZ to accelerate school meals and support the transformation of food systems and community resilience in Karene district. This includes converting all 115 schools in Karene to Home-Grown School Feeding modality (currently only 5 schools are on this modality), with increased local procurement of existing commodities in the food basket, as well as the addition of fresh commodities. The schools will receive a package of interventions including infrastructural support, capacity strengthening and SBCC.

Under the direct supervision of the Head of Sub-Office and overall guidance of Head of School Feeding, the incumbent will ensure effective and quality implementation of Home-Grown School Feeding in WFP-assisted schools in Karene district, specifically through the following activities:
