To assist the Government of Bangladesh (GoB) in meeting its education targets set out in SDG4, UN World Food Programme (WFP) is implementing their 'School Feeding Programme' – an endeavor that combines 'health and nutrition' as well as 'literacy skills' components for children in pre-primary and primary schools.

USDA/WFP has entrusted Room to Read with the literacy segment of the endeavor. With permission from GoB's Ministry of Education, we are delivering engaging and evidence-based training for teachers to help improve their classroom instruction capacity. As part of the project (brochure), we are supporting head-teachers and officials of the local government with governance, transparency and management practices.
