SKY and Knowledge Channel continue their advocacy to help uplift the lives of public school children through a partnership with Nestlé for “NutriTALK,” a two-part series of talks that aims to educate parents and teachers on proper nutrition.
Close to 100 parents and teachers from SKY partner schools recently the talk conducted by a registered nutritionist dietician affiliated with Nestlé at Paltok Elementary School in Quezon City and at Estanislao Villanueva Elementary School in Imus, Cavite.
“By engaging parents and teachers through these talks on proper nutrition, we hope to help improve students’ overall development,” said March Ventosa, president and COO of SKY.
Nestlé, through various programs, conducts nutrition education sessions across the Philippines in line with its purpose to enhance the Filipinos’ quality of life and contribute to a healthier future.
The “NutriTALK” attendees also participated in a disaster preparedness seminar led by the SKY Emergency Response Team.
SKY continues to support Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) by providing their stakeholders with rich learning and informative content. In 2017, they teamed up formally to give students all over the country access to Knowledge Channel’s multimedia educational materials created with the Department of Education.
Over the years, SKY has provided more than 1,000 schools with access to Knowledge Channel and its learning materials.
SKY further reinforced its efforts by engaging its employees in a book drive that benefited its partner schools. The project “BOOkas Palad” enabled students from the participating schools get their own copies of Philippine literature books as seen on Knowledge Channel.
