Fan Milk PLC in conjunction with the Ghana Education Service (GES) have launched its 2021 School Caravan Campaign to sensitize over 100,000 basic school children on sanitation and healthy snacking as part of its corporate social responsibility.
The ‘School Caravan’ launched in 2018 is aimed at touching the lives of 100,000 pupils in 180 schools this year.
According to them, given the COVID-19 pandemic, the School Caravan has been enhanced to drive the importance of hand washing and wearing of the face masks against the spread of corona virus as well as education on healthy snacking in order to boast the immune system.

“The School Caravan is a demonstration of our mission to become part of the solution to malnutrition in children and young adults while driving the importance of environmental management and sanitation. It is imperative that we all adhere to the COVID-19 protocols and adopt healthy eating and snacking habits”, he noted.
The School Caravan also aims at educating these pupils on the positive effect of environmental consciousness through its “Wrapper Collection promo”.
Since the inception of the FanChoco School Caravan in 2018, FanMilk PLC has reached over 500,000 pupils in 180,000 schools across Accra, Tema and Kumasi. The company is committed to extending the School Caravan and related educational activities to the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.
