Coca-Cola to award $1m to help water resources

22nd December 2008

Coca-Cola is to award $1 million (671,000 pounds) to projects aimed at improving sanitation and water resources in developing countries.

Selected by the Global Water Challenge (GWC) business coalition and Ashoka’s Changemakers, four schemes in Kenya, South Africa, Rwanda and India will receive funding.

A total of 265 projects in 54 countries submitted an application for the awards.

Paul Faeth, executive director of GWC, said Coca-Cola’s grant will enable the organisation "to further fund projects that we believe will start a ripple effect in their communities and create scalable, replicable and sustainable models that can be applied around the world".
