Ribena Bridges To Goodness School Project – Impacting Good Values In Children

Children all over Nigeria will be helped to build good values in a fun and interactive way courtesy of Ribena which has initiated a life-impacting partnership with Bridges To Goodness Projects called “Ribena Bridges To Goodness School Project” aimed at entrenching good values and healthy living among young people in schools across Nigeria.

Our society hands out prizes for football, athletics, math, science, etc., except for good values and character. Ribena Good Values Awards identifies and spotlights deserving students who really make a difference, who go beyond the compulsory or convenient to help others overcome obstacles and live with integrity.

The goal of Ribena Good Values Awards is to identify, develop, spotlight, and ultimately build deserving students (honoree’s) who really make a difference, who go beyond the compulsory or convenient to help others overcome obstacles and live with integrity.
