The Ghana School Feeding Programme (GSFP) is being impeded by lack of information about the roles and responsibilities of its key stakeholders and how they are expected to collaborate with each other.

This came out when officials from the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development and the GSFP on Monday organized a workshop to educate the Regional and District level actors of the GSFP from the Upper East Region about their roles and responsibilities in relation to the implementation of the programme.

Mrs. Irene Odokai Messiba, an Assistant Director of the Ministry, said because of lack of information for key stakeholders regarding their roles and responsibilities in the implementation of the GSFP, many of them including Municipal/District Assemblies, Education Officers and communities were not involved in decision making process of the GSFP.

She urged all the stakeholders to study their respective roles and responsibilities to ensure the successful implementation of the GSFP.

Mrs. Sarah Naa Dedei Agbey, Senior Advisor of Netherlands Development Organization who took the participants through the Social Accountability Project of the GSFP, said it was important to win the confidence of the donors by being transparent and accountable in carrying out activities of the GSFP so as to win sponsorship from other donors.

The Upper East Deputy Regional Minister, Mrs. Lucy Awuni, urged the participants to take the implementation process of the GSFP seriously since it was one of the positive interventions to get more pupils of school going age to school.

She appealed to all the implementing stakeholders to adequately monitor the implementation stages to ensure that there were no diversions or misappropriation of funds to ensure that the exercise made a positive impact.
