Who We Are


 

The Technical and Operational Performance Support (TOPS) Program is the USAID/Food for Peace-funded learning mechanism that generates, captures, disseminates, and applies the highest quality information, knowledge, and promising practices in development food assistance programming to ensure that more communities and households benefit from the U.S. Government’s investment in fighting global hunger. Through technical capacity building; a small grants program to fund research, documentation, and innovation; and an in-person and online community of practice, the Food Security and Nutrition (FSN) Network, TOPS empowers food security implementers and the donor community to foster lasting impact for millions of the world’s most vulnerable people.

Led by Save the Children US, TOPS draws on the expertise of consortium members: CORE Group (Knowledge Management), Food for the Hungry (Social and Behavioral Change), Mercy Corps (Agriculture and Natural Resource Management), and TANGO International (Monitoring and Evaluation). Save the Children brings its experience and expertise in Commodity Management, Gender, and Maternal, Infant, and Child Nutrition, as well as the management of this 7-year (2010-2017), US$30 million award.
