Empowering Future Generations through Improved Nutrition in Primary Schools in Bangladesh


Primary school dropout is a chronic issue in Bangladesh. On 11 July 2012, Dubai Cares, in partnership with the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), inaugurated a new pilot school feeding program championed by the Government of Bangladesh. The program aims to improve the nutrition and school attendance of children 5 to 11 years old from vulnerable families in one urban area of Dhaka and two rural areas of Mymensing District.
