Nestle Supports the Cause of #EducateTheGirlChild with Nanhi Kali

Nestle India has brought a change in packaging of three of its most popular brands, MaggiI, Nescafe and Kitkat to support girl child education in association with Nanhi Kali, NGO imparting education to underprivileged girl children across India. In an attempt to spread awareness for this critical issue of girl child education in India, Nestle has changed packaging of 100 million packs available on shelves by the end of September.

In an innovative approach and for the first time in India for any FMCG brand, Maggi, Nescafe and Kitkat will give up their most iconic and recognized brand properties to support the cause of educating the girl child. Maggi has changed its tag line from “2 minute noodles” to “2 minutes for education”. Kitkat has changed the visual of the finger snap to one without the break with the line “No break from education” and Nescafe changed the tagline “It all starts with a Nescafe” to “It all starts with education”. This has been further reinforced with a blue band which carries more information on the association with the URL of Nanhi Kali.

Speaking on the partnership Suresh Narayanan, Chairman and Managing Director, Nestle India said, “We are changing the packaging of three of our most iconic brands to sensitize and draw attention to the crucial need for society and citizens to embrace our collective responsibility in ensuring that girls are allowed, given access to and nurtured with the power of education. Girls with access to education not only improve their own lives but also bring positive changes to their families, communities and economies.”

Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group, says “This is a path-breaking and innovative partnership between Nestle India and a non-profit organisation, both leaders in their respective field. We believe that supporting girl's education is a national priority and will have a far reaching positive impact on society. I am sure the new packaging of Maggi, Nescafe and Kitkat carrying the message to #EducateTheGirlChild will have the desired impact of helping Nanhi Kali put a million girls in school. I am immensely grateful to Nestle for their support to Nanhi Kali."

The partnership with Nanhi Kali further strengthens the Nestle Healthy Kids Programme which has already reached out to about 1,00,000 beneficiaries, claims company. Project Nanhi Kali, jointly managed by K. C. Mahindra Education Trust and Naandi Foundation, has been a credible programme working in the area of girl child education for decades.
