Madagascar: EU unblocks 4.5 million euro for school canteen meals in the South of the island
The European Union has decided to grant a financial envelope of 4.5 million euro for Malagasy school canteens in the wake of the food programme (WFP) initiated in 2,200 primary schools located in the regions of Androy, Anosy and Atsimo Andrefana in southern Madagascar.

Primary schools in these regions are particularly affected head-on by a high dropout rate.

500,000 schoolchildren will be able to eat their fill during the first two quarters of the school year 2013-2014 with prepared meals including with "corn, pulses and invigorating vitamin oil", as relates the newspaper L'Express of Madagascar.
