They will then receive a call back and SMS explaining the entire procedure. Entries for the campaign will close on August 31, 2018. Talking about this initiative, Humayun Farooq, Director Marketing – Health, RBPL said, “Going back to school is an exciting time for parents and children alike. Unfortunately, due to sickness and diseases, many students are unable to focus on their education. Dettol has been working towards ensuring the health of children for a more productive academic year, in line with our overall hygiene mission of Hoga Saaf Pakistan. Thus, to encourage students to work harder and stay focused, we have launched the Dettol Back to School initiative of giving scholarships.”

Dettol also has a School Program reaching over 2 million students every year, which focuses on establishing the importance of hygiene and handwashing with soap, to help fight against germs that lead to students falling ill during the school year.
