At the occasion, Jason Avanceña, CEO, of Nestlé Pakistan highlighted Nestlé’s association with PWWF.  “Our association goes back 5 years, we started N4HK training at PWWF Girls School Multan in early 2016 and since then we have jointly worked together to strengthen this partnership with every passing year with more teacher training and development of N4HK room in Lahore and now here in Sahukimalian.”

Speaking on the occasion, Secretary Labour and Chairman PWWF Faisal Fareed said, “We are honored to continue the partnership with Nestlé Pakistan and extend the reach of its N4HK initiative to schools across Punjab. We are confident that the awareness imparted on nutrition to teachers will play a very important role in promoting healthy habits and a better nourished future generation.”

This inauguration is part of PWWF and Nestlé Pakistan’s earlier collaboration to launch the N4HK program in 14 schools across Lahore, Sheikhupura, Warburton, Multan, Kasur, Faisalabad, Layyah, Muzaffargarh, and Rawalpindi to promote healthy nutrition by training more than 500 teachers reaching out to 15,000 students till 2024.

Under the multiyear partnership with PWWF, Nestlé implemented the program in six schools in Multan, Lahore, Sheikhupura, and Warburton, training more than 200 teachers on nutrition awareness through expert trainers. Nestlé Pakistan also developed 3 N4HK rooms in partner schools, which provided a way for teachers and educators to reinforce the importance of good nutrition concepts for children.

The N4HK program is part of Nestlé’s commitment to United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 3 of Good Health and Well-Being, to ensure that children understand the value of nutrition as they grow older.
