Brief History of WFP in Madhya Pradesh
A total of four projects have been implemented in the state so
project of World Food Programme 2684 started in M.P. on 1/1/1986. In
first year, only 8 districts were covered and subsequently it covered
all the 45 districts in 3rd and 4th year. The duration of the
project was upto December'89 but it was extended upto 30th June
Project, 3227 commenced in all 45 Districts for a period from 1/7/90 to 30/6/94.
However it was extended upto 30/6/96. The
"bridge phase" between Project 3227 and 5569.01 was applicable
in 18 districts only. It lasted till 30/9/97.
Project 5569/01 commenced on 1/10/97 in 11
districts of erstwhile Madhya Pradesh and from 1.4.98 in Seoni
District. These 12 districts have been split into 21 districts under
district reorganization. Subsequent to the reorganisation of the State
in November 2000, 10 of the 21 districts have gone to Chhattisgarh
State. This programme was implemented in 11 districts in Madhya
Pradesh. These Districts are Balaghat, Chhindwara, Dindori,
Harda, Hoshangabad, Jhabua, Mandla, Shahdol, Seoni, Sidhi and Umaria.
The project has ended on 31/3/2003 but the implementation of remaining
sanctioned work continued till 30/6/05.
and present Project 10107.0 Act 3 commenced from 1/4/2003 and will
continue for five years in 7 districts of western M.P. These districts
are Betul,Khandwa, Burhanpur, Khargone, Barwani, Dhar and
Beneficiaries and Benefits
beneficiaries of the WFP supplied food will be households
from the scheduled tribes, scheduled castes and other backward castes.
The income transfer value of the food ration provides a significant
additional support to households.
Anticipated effects on women
several processes for increasing involvement of women in the project
have been set in line with WFPs commitments to women. A gender
mainstreaming approach has been adopted and the various ways this
has been done are:
are to comprise at least 50 per cent of the direct beneficiaries in
the Food for Work activities and should comprise at
least 30 per cent (50 per cent in the long run) of the members in the village development
committees/user groups created.
The percentage of women beneficiaries
is expected to be around 50 percent in the creation of human
development assets (capacity building), it is envisaged to target
women groups separately through food for training (SHGs and food
banks). In addition, the long term benefits of the activities
undertaken are expected to be more in line with the needs of women
(e.g., food banks, drinking water facilities, ponds etc.)

other bi-and multilateral agencies that target

WFP started using funds generated under the food-for-work programme
for development of projects in tribal areas. Since then, funds have
been utilised for forestry, agriculture, community
infrastructure and income generating activities that help
forest dependent families shift their livelihoods to other vocations.

activities (i.e Micro Plan) in the selected districts and villages

11. New Initiatives of WFP
Project, "Food for Human Development" is being undertaken in a
cluster of 41 villages in four districts Balaghat,
Mandla, Seoni and Chhindwara. The
duration of project is 12 months and the targeted beneficiaries
are 100% women of SC/ST category, below poverty line and around 48-50 years of age. The Project aims to strengthen the human and
social capital of communities by empowering women Self Help Groups in
project villages to improve the delivery of social services in areas
of health, education, nutrition and sanitation using food incentives.
The expected outcome of the pilot project is to get a perceptible
improvement in implementation of ICDS and Mid Day Meal, health
services and other social service delivery systems supported by Women
SHGs. The project is being implemented through NGO's.
In all four Districts selection of NGO's have been finalized and on
28th and 29th April 2006 a two day training camp
was organized at Seoni to give training to these NGO's and the local
forest staff in tools of doing base line survey in the selected
villages of these districts. MOU have been signed by all the four NGO's
and base line survey has been completed.
NGOs have prepared village specific action plan and a detailed
discussion took place with them in March 2007 in which they were told
about the shortcomings of village specific action plan and given
instructions to modify them. A meeting at district level with district
officials was held and they were briefed about this project and their
assistance was sought for training the SHG's. The SHG's selected by
NGO's have been given training and project has started from 1st May
2007. Mid Term Review of this Project was held in November 2007 and it
has shown encouraging results.
