CAN THO - Nestle Vietnam’s Milo brand has signed a cooperation agreement with the Departments of Education and Training of Can Tho City and Vinh Long Province in the Mekong Delta to expand the “Active Vietnam” program to these two localities.

Addressing the signing ceremony on January 15, Ali Abbas, director of Nestle Milo and Nestle Vietnam, said under the program, the company will organize sporting events and help improve the physical fitness of primary students in the Mekong Delta.

This year, Nestle Milo will organize football festivals, basketball tournaments for high school students, walking events, and donate 50 basketball poles and 20 football goals to schools in Can Tho and Vinh Long.

The “Active Vietnam” program is part of a project called “Enhancing the physical stature of Vietnamese in the 2011-2030 period” jointly implemented by Nestle Vietnam, the Ministry of Education and Training, and the General Department of Sports and Physical Training.

The project seeks to encourage a healthy lifestyle and frequent physical activity in the community, especially among children aged between six and 17.
