Phase 2- Empowering the Children, Philippines
Remember that one time we shared a post about a great program we were working on in the Philippines?! Ok, ok- if you don’t remember, you can read about it here. Now, remember how we mentioned that we were hoping to expand that program? Great news! Drumroll please………! September 24th is the official start of a similar, but even bigger program in the Philippines! This time, we will be serving 7 different schools. 50 students will be picked from each of these schools to be a part of this program- making that a total of 350 students. From 31 students, to 350 in literally 4 months! How exciting is this, you guys?! And get this, whereas the pilot program was conducted over an 8 week period, this time, the program will go on for 12 weeks! Our USANA Philippines staff has worked SO hard to make this a reality, and we couldn’t be more excited and grateful.
The structure of the program will be similar to that of the pilot program. A daily dose of Usanimals will be administered to the children, with nutritious and pre-approved breakfasts served to the students on Saturday mornings. In addition to these breakfasts, there will be lessons on nutrition and health choices provided at the schools which the students attend. These lessons will be aimed towards influencing behavior and forming healthy habits.
We are so thrilled to share this good news with you all, and we look forward to the continuation and success of this program in the Philippines!
