ABOUT THE FRUITS4SCHOOLZ SCHEME
The fruits4schoolz scheme was birth for the sole purpose of providing free, nutritious, healthy fruits through school-based initiatives to children in the public primary education from the ages of 4 – 8years respectively.
This scheme ensures that every child within the aforementioned ages is entitled to a piece of fruit each school daily during the school term through-out the year. This Scheme will be made available only to children in public schools within Nigeria.
Our aim is to encourage a healthy life balance and lifestyle changes such that this impacts their education, healthy, and life in general.
We intend to educate these children about fruits & Vegetables and its impact on their health, education and life so that they can in turn transfer this knowledge to their parents, siblings and communities as a whole.
Fruits4schoolz begun its activities in 2014 where it started providing fruits for children in Obalende once a month. Shortly after, the scheme was implemented in Ladi-Lak primary School Bariga and has now increased its scope to ilupeju primary School and ilupeju community school respectively where we are currently feeding over 1000 children.
TYPES OF FRUITS & VEGETABLES
We currently procure fruits from wholesalers on a large scale and aim to eventually partner with Farms who will either support our cause and provide fruits for us either at a discounted rate or free. Below are the range of fruits we give to the children;
- Oranges, Pineapples, Tangerines, Agbalumo, Carrots, Banana’s, Cabbage, Apples, Water Melon, Paw-Paw etc.
The time of Season purely determines the type of fruits the children will be given at a particular point in time.
