Back to School

Your Health First supports Ministry’s Back to School campaign

Sahtak Awalan – Your Health First has once again supported the annual Back to School campaign of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOEHE).

Each year, Your Health First works with the MOEHE, one of its strategic partners, to provide free school equipment to help returning schoolchildren start the new school year with motivation to learn, keep fit and healthy, and gain an appreciation of the importance of safeguarding the environment.

Your Health First, the flagship public health campaign of WCM-Q, this year provided excited schoolchildren with new water bottles, lunch boxes, and solar-powered STEM education kits. The kits will allow the schoolchildren to learn practical lessons about renewable energy in a series of fun and engaging projects by building solar-powered model cars, airplanes, and houses.

Your Health First also provides free information resources to help children learn about the positive impact on health of eating a healthy diet rich in fruit and vegetables, avoiding unhealthy snacks, and engaging in physical exercise on a regular basis.

Nesreen Al-Rifai, chief communications, external affairs & development officer at WCM-Q said: “We are delighted to support the Back to School campaign of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education, which is instrumental in helping schoolchildren all over Qatar start the new school year with energy, enthusiasm and motivation to achieve their full potential. Your Health First is proud and grateful to have the opportunity to continue to collaborate with our long-term strategic partner, the Ministry of Education and Higher Education to help spread positive messages about healthy eating, exercise, environmental sustainability and eco-friendly practices to schoolchildren.”
