Ace Badminton player Saina Nehwal came on board with Smile Foundation and Herbalife Family Foundation, for the launch of the third phase of the Casa Herbalife programme.
1000 children studying at Mission Education centres across India will be provided free nutritional support under the programme covering New Delhi, Gurgaon (Haryana) and Chandigarh in the North; Kolkata (West Bengal) in the East; Baroda (Gujarat) and Thane (Maharashtra) in the West; and Chennai (Tamil Nadu), Hyderabad (Telangana) and Bengaluru (Karnataka) in the South.
Herbalife Family Foundation has already been supporting the nutrition of 2000 Smile Foundation children over the last two years.
Extremely poor families often have to make the choice between sending their children to work in order to get food, and sending them to school. As such, providing school meals can be a crucial factor in determining whether a child has an education.
Smile Foundation has been making efforts to not only provide underprivileged children with nutritious food at Mission Education centres across India, but also making their parents and communities aware about the importance of proper nutrition in the holistic development of children.
