In commemoration of World Water Day 2023, Nestlé Nigeria took the message of responsible water management to over 160 children and teachers in both public and private primary schools, in collaboration with the Ogun State Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency and the FCT Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency.
The events included a tour of the company’s water plants in Agbara, Ogun State, and Abaji, in the Federal Capital Territory.
Activities included games to help the children inculcate the right habits in the way they use, consume, and manage water, to help them become better stewards of this precious resource.
World Water Day is an annual United Nations observance to raise awareness about the importance of water and the impact of our actions on preserving this scarce resource today and for future generations.
The theme for this year’s celebration is “Accelerating Change”.
Joy Abdullahi-Johnson, Marketing and Category Manager for Nestlé Waters Nigeria said, “Water is the most critical natural resource for human survival, after the air. It, therefore, needs to be managed in a way that is equitable, environmentally sustainable, and economically beneficial. With the increasing pressure on our water resources, we all need to work together to preserve this vital resource we all depend on”.
“At Nestlé, we believe that equipped with the right information, children can become good stewards of the environment from an early age. We are therefore excited to be at the forefront of efforts to educate these young ones today”, she added.
In his comments at the Agbara factory, Mr. Sola Ogunbor, the Program Manager of Ogun State Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency, said, “World Water Day is another opportunity to emphasis the need for daily consumption of clean water in adequate amounts for optimal hydration and healthy living. Children can contribute to accelerating.
