Accountability for Delivering Home Grown Food to Nigerian Children
October 26, 2021 | Grantee Publications | On Nigeria

Nigeria’s Home Grown School Feeding Programme (HGSFP) in Ogun State, and across the country, aimed to feed children healthy meals while employing local farmers, cooks, and vendors. MacArthur grantee Action Health, Incorporated (AHI) and other organizations monitored the delivery of the HGSFP in Ogun and used accountability interventions to reduce the risk of corruption. AHI created a handbook for community accountability partners to facilitate monitoring and transparency.

A MacArthur-supported report shows how AHI and its partners fostered more accountability especially through community participation. It also found that transparency could be improved with data and information sharing and stronger supports from authorities at all levels. The report and a highlights reel share lessons for future interventions.
