drivers safety

Those who ply the roads in Sheikhupura couldn’t be happier because they feel they’ve learned a great deal from this facility. “I am careful with how I drive my vehicle now,” says driver, Mustafa. “I used to be reckless before but through the program I learnt how to be a safe driver so that I don’t endanger my life as well as the lives of others,” he adds. The training provided at National Highways and Motorway Police (NH&MP) institute has not only helped Mustafa and many others like him become better drivers but has also enabled them to reap monetary benefits. “Ever since I started driving carefully, the company gave me a raise. That was a bonus,” says a beaming Mustafa.

Nestlé Pakistan, in collaboration with the National Highways and Motorway Police (NH&MP), established the first drivers’ training institute near Sheikhupura with the objective of ensuring the safety and well-being of the communities it operates in.

“Despite coming from an extremely conservative background, I had to send my 18-year-old daughter to another city (Lahore) for work”, says Sajida, mother of 6 residing in Renala, Punjab. Her story is one of many that exist in Pakistan. Many mothers have to make the tough choice of not being able to give their children an education or in extremes even a decent meal.

“My husband works as a laborer and we were barely making ends meet. I always wanted my children to go to school and receive good education so that they can become self-sufficient when they grow up. I used to receive stipend from BISP. I was very keen and excited when Nestlé Pakistan came to Renala and gave us sales training. I started my own little shop at my house with Nestlé’s products. People from the village started to come to me to buy them. After that, there has been a substantial increase in my earnings and every month I am expanding my shop. Now I am able to send all of my kids to school. “

Fatima & Family

Pregnant women are discriminated against by employers as they may consider pregnant women a liability, with decreased productivity and not a “good investment”. This was exactly my dilemma as I was offered a job at Nestlé Pakistan in the 6th month of my second pregnancy, says Fatima Akhtar, Public Affairs Manager, Nestlé Pakistan

As I was having the last round of interview with my current line manager, I kept on wondering about this pregnancy overriding my merit, yet I wanted to be upfront with my future employer, so I mustered the courage and told him I was expecting. However, to my pleasant surprise, he responded by saying, “Sure, that’s fine. I don’t see that as a problem. I will forward you the Nestlé Maternity Protection policy so you know the benefits extended by Nestlé to ensure your wellbeing”. I finally joined Nestlé on 1st November 2015 and delivered a 7 pound healthy baby boy on 2nd February, 2016.

BISP StoryBenazir Income Support Programme (BISP) in collaboration with Nestlé Pakistan officially launched their “Rural Livelihood Program”. This transformative collaboration has enabled BISP beneficiaries often referred to as "poorest of the poor" women, to earn a livelihood for themselves and their families as Nestlé Rural Sales Agents.

To date more than 250 beneficiaries have been enrolled as Nestlé Pakistan Rural Sales Agents across 12 districts of Punjab and Sindh.

The program has seen many success stories such as Sajida Bibi from Renala, Punjab who has successfully enrolled her daughter back in school. "My husband was a sole breadwinner of our family and was on daily wages. Our financial circumstances only allowed us to barely afford 2 meals a day. It was only when my husband fell sick and could not go to work, that our financial conditions took a turn for the worst. Despite coming from an extremely conservative background, I had to send my 18 year old daughter to another city (Lahore) for work”, says Sajida Parveen.

Rani Begum, is a Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) beneficiary residing in a village near Sukkur in Sindh. A mother of 7 children, Rani begum was reliant on the money provided by BISP every quarter to meet all her household expenses. Despite living in such conditions, Rani Begum aspired that all her 7 kids (5 daughters and 2 sons) are enrolled in school. Rani begum attended her first Sales Training with Nestlé Pakistan in January 2018. Since then, she is working as a Nestlé Sales Agent in villages around Sukkur. Her earning is now approximately US $130 (PKR 14,000) every quarter.

“Being able to send my kids to school means everything to me in this world. My husband who works on daily wages, made our household income very unpredictable and this made me very concerned. We used to get funds from BISP every month. Then Nestlé came and helped me understand how I can start a small business right from my home and helped me open a small shop. Now, I have a respectable living and wish to further expand this business. By God’s grace, my children are going to school now and I am very happy”, says Rani.

"I have been supplying milk to Nestlé for the past two years. I wanted to purchase more dairy animals to expand my production capacity. One day, I received an SMS from Nestlé’s Kisan (farmer) Club SMS Service informing me about a digital lending program. I placed my request for a loan by making a phone call to the bank and received the loan amount of PKR 300,000 within two days in my mobile wallet. I found the process hassle-free and convenient in comparison to availing a loan through conventional banking", says 26 year old Naveed who found the dairy business sustainable and profitable due to the support Nestlé Pakistan has provided to him.


Committed to the UN Sustainable Development Goal (UNSDG) 8- Decent work and economic growth, and as part of leveraging digitization to benefit its dairy value chain, Nestlé Pakistan joined hands with Telenor Microfinance Bank to facilitate its dairy farmer base through the provision of digital micro-finance lending.

It’s 1867 in Switzerland, and a premature baby cannot breastfeed, which is worrying in an era when many infants die of malnutrition due to a lack of effective breast milk alternatives. Henri Nestlé learns about the case and feeds the child his new ‘farine lactée’ infant food. It is the only product that the boy can digest, and he survives.

Word of Nestlé’s success spreads rapidly, and through determination, commitment and a pioneering spirit he builds a thriving business. His life-saving innovation is the model for all those that follow throughout Nestlé’s 150 years, which show the company’s skill in meeting and anticipating consumers’ changing needs.

Nestlé’s Nutrition Support Program addressing key micronutrient deficiencies

 

Nestlé’s Nutrition Support Program annually provides nutritious products to approximately 20,000 children and underprivileged people who suffer from key micronutrient deficiencies. Nestlé Pakistan regularly provides company products, primarily fortified milk, to selected schools in urban, semi-urban and rural areas. The children that attend the educational institutes we support are poor and their parents cannot afford to fulfill their nutritional needs. The schools are selected after giving due consideration to the profile of the managing organization – capacity of the organization, its outreach and resource availability.

Nestlé Pakistan is providing regular nutritional support to the underprivileged students of Mashal school, a NGO managed school in Islamabad for the underprivileged children living in Noor Poor Shahan. “The children who study at Mashal School are unable to afford a healthy meal a day and Nestlé has helped, on regular basis, in providing milk to every student of this school and contributing in fulfilling the nutritional needs of these underprivileged children.” says Zeba Hussain, chairperson MASHAL.

Shaukat, 28 years old dairy farmer is continually expanding his dairy farm and milk supply by the assistance provided from Nestlé’s Milk Collection and Dairy Development team.

"I was an agriculture farmer working with cash crops. One day, I met Nestlé’s team and they encouraged me to venture into dairy farming. I started a dairy farm with five cows. They encouraged me to adopt best dairy farm practices. Nestlé training programs and scheduled visits by dairy development executives helped me grow my dairy farm business. Initially travelling to Nestlé’s Milk Collection Centre to deliver the milk was very time consuming for me. On my request, Nestlé provided me with a milk chiller and installed it at my farm. Now the milk van comes to collect milk directly at my farm and I am notified through SMS about the milk quality and supply. This has been very beneficial for me”, says Shaukat.

Pakistan has the largest number of milk producing animals but with a lowest yield. Today the dairy sector is facing three key challenges; quality, quantity and cost of producing milk. The demand has been growing at 4.5 % annually while supply has been growing at only 3%. The dairy farmers in Pakistan are not developed at a rapid pace due to high costs of milk production, limited access to farm input supplies and lack of knowledge about best dairy farming practices.

Shabana, a mother of 3 children has always been preoccupied with her kids’ state of nutrition. Her children were fond of meat but aversive to vegetables, salads and lentils. When the project initially started at her son’s school (The Trust School in Thokar Niaz Baig, Lahore), she noticed a change in his eating pattern. Hammad started sharing information about healthy diet, importance of breakfast and hygiene with his siblings at home. He also started exploring more nutritious food options other than chicken and began drinking more water. Days later, she came to realize that some useful information about healthy diet and hygiene was being shared at the school under the Nestlé Healthy Kids Program (NHK).

As shared by Shabana, “The NHK Program has positively affected the behavior of my son towards eating as he has started to eat portions of vegetables, lentils and fruits without us forcing him. He has started drinking water more frequently and ensures hand washing before every meal. These are some of the positive short term outcomes that I have noticed.”

Earlier, I had to travel long distance to collect my weekly milk payments from the Milk Collection Centre and it was very time consuming. Ever since I’ve registered for a mobile wallet, receiving payments has become very convenient. Now when Nestlé sends the milk payment, I just receive an SMS notification on my mobile phone and collect it from the nearest agent, which is right around the corner in my village. I only withdraw the money I want to utilize and save the remaining in my mobile wallet. This service is a great relief”, said Zubaida.

A Collective Approach: Nestlé Pakistan Water Plan launched

Nestlé Pakistan Water Plan was unveiled at Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) to drive the need for Collective Action on a Shared Water Resource. The coalition was led by Nestlé Pakistan with LUMS, Sustainable Development Policy Institute (SDPI), WWF Pakistan, Department of Agriculture, Govt. of Punjab and Pakistan Agriculture Research Centre (PARC).

One of the major threats Pakistan faces today is water scarcity. We are the third most water stressed country in the world, with our current per capita annual water availability 1,017 cubic meters (down from 1,500 cubic meters in 2009). There are scientific guesstimates that the country may run dry by 2025 if we do not take immediate, collective action.

The Nestlé Pakistan Water Plan aims to bring together multiple partners to preserve and protect water resources by leveraging research and technology to reduce and recycle water, introduce sustainable agricultural techniques to reduce water use vis-a-vis increased yield and provide access to clean and safe water within communities.

Nestlé Pakistan, continuing its commitment to improve access to clean drinking water across our value chain, recently inaugurated a clean drinking water facility in Bhatti Dhilwan village, near our Sheikhupura Factory.

The facility was inaugurated by Nestlé Waters Global CEO Marco Settembri and Nestlé Pakistan Managing Director Bruno Olierhoek. At least 5,000 people belonging to the neighbouring areas will have access to clean drinking water on a daily basis as a result of this initiative.

This is not the first time that Nestlé has invested in meeting the water needs of the community. In 2014, the company had renovated the Bhatti Dhilwan Government Primary School for Boys and established a clean drinking water facility there.

On the occasion of Mr Settembri’s visit, an MoU was signed between Khurrum Zia, Nestlé Water’s Country Business Manager, and Hammad Naqi, WWF-Pakistan Director General, under which the latter would help the company implement sustainability practices and Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) International Water Stewardship Standard at its Islamabad factory. The two partners have already put the AWS standard in place at Nestlé’s Sheikhupura Factory.

Spirit of Nestlé

The Human Resource department at Nestlé Pakistan held a three-day orientation session – ‘Spirit of Nestlé – for the new inductees who joined the organisation in the summer of 2015.

About 14 new joiners received sessions about different operations in the company so that they could gain an insight into their daily functioning. They also spend a day at the Nestlé’s Sukheki Farm and Sheikhupura Factory to get a better idea of the dairy value chain and internal processes through which different products are manufactured at the organisation.

The Spirit of Nestlé was started in 2012 and aims to provide experiential learning to new comers with its farm to fork approach, says Mian Nabeel Ahmed, Recruitment Specialist at the Human Resources department.

"I think the Spirit of Nestlé is useful because usually we don’t have time to get to know about different departments," said Sarah Khan, who has joined Nestlé as an Accounting Specialist at the Milk Collection and Dairy Development Department (MCDD). "This session is a good platform to interact with other employees."

Overburdened agricultural sector

A recent UNDP report stated that the population of Pakistan is growing at 2% every year and agriculture is playing a crucial role in order to bear such an enormous population. More than half of the population of Pakistan i.e. 65% lives in rural areas and over 46% of the entire employment is delivered by the agriculture sector. This places an immense burden on the agricultural sector to deliver. However, opportunities for farmers are limited in terms of raising enough finance.

The Village Woman Becomes an Agent of Change

Young and ambitious Khalida had always wanted to give something back to Peerano Goth and the community she lives in. The village near the Port Qasim Factory is where she was brought up and studied. The best way to ‘pay it forward’ was to teach at the village school. But that seemed difficult when the government primary school at Peerano Goth closed down. “Initially, the village school at Peerano Goth did not have a building and classes were held under a tree where every morning the children of the village would gather and the headmaster would give a general talk. On days when the head master was absent, someone else from the village would take his place,” says Khalida.

When Nawaz Cheema got involved with the Nestlé Dairy Development Programme in 2010, little did he know that it would change his life forever. A small-scale farmer from Kot Ishaq district, Hafizabad, Cheema reared a few animals on his farm. He was largely dependent on agriculture as his primary source of income which remained inconsistent given the vagaries of weather. Even the animals he reared didn’t exactly turn out to be the cash cows he had hoped. It was the Nestlé Milk Collection Dairy Development staff that persuaded him to invest more time and resources into dairy farming, and explore the possibility of taking it forward as a business venture.

The streets of Sheikhupura may not be the best in the country but they are certainly one of the safest thanks to Nestlé’s collaboration with the NH&MP. The school serves as a top-notch drivers’ training facility for truckers and motorists in Sheikhupura.

Those who ply the roads in Sheikhupura couldn’t be happier because they feel they’ve learnt a great deal from this facility. “I am careful with how I drive my vehicle now,” says Nestlé driver, Mustafa. “I used to be reckless before but Nestlé has taught me how to be a safe driver so that I don’t endanger my life as well as the lives of others,” he adds. The training provided at Nestlé NH&MP institute has not only helped Mustafa and many others like him become better drivers, but has also enabled them to reap monetary benefits. “Ever since I started driving carefully, the company gave me a raise. That was a bonus,” says a beaming Mustafa.
