The children who study at Mountain School Changla Gali are unable to afford a healthy meal a day. It was to address this concern that the Mountain School sought Nestlé’s help. The Company now provides each student with a daily serving of milk.
Ms. Irum Abbasi, a local resident, took the initiative in 2007 as a one room school inside her house at a small village, Batnara in Changla Gali – Galliat. At that time, there was no public school for the children of the area which could provide basic education to them. The brainchild of Ms. Irum Abbasi that started out with 60 kids now caters to the educational needs of 150 children, all from the surrounding communities. Although the school cannot provide them with a meal, the administration says that regular intake of milk provides children some of the nourishment they need.
