1 min read

The Nairobi County Government has signed a school feeding program agreement with the National Government.

The signing of the Intergovernmental Partnership Agreement (IPA) on the School Feeding Programmes for Public Primary Schools in Nairobi was also witnessed by Treasury Cabinet Secretary Njuguna Ndungu.

“The parties have agreed to collaborate in the development of conducive teaching and learning experience in public primary schools in the Nairobi City County, beginning with a program for the provision of school meals within the said County, to improve the health and nutrition status of the leaners,” the agreement stated.

This IPA is a collaboration between the two levels of governments National and does not translate to the transfer of any functions and/or power of the National Government to the Nairobi City County Government.

The Sh1.7 billion agreement sets the terms of understanding between the parties in the implementation of the school meals programme in public primary schools within the capital.

Treasury Cabinet Secretary Njuguna Ndung’u who witnessed the signing said the programme will have a ripple effect on the economy, increase education attainment for improved human capital and improve smart agriculture in the supply chain.

Last month, President William Ruto said his administration will ensure that every county that decides to allocate money for the feeding program is boosted with additional funding from the national government.
