Coca-Cola grants $3.5M to African water initiatives
- The Coca-Cola Co. and The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation will give $3.5 million to the United States Water Partnership (USWP) to boost access to sustainable water in Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mozambique and Somaliland. The money will support USWP operations and water access programs through the Replenish Africa Initiative, which itself is backed by a six-year, $30 million dollar commitment from Atlanta-based Coca-Cola (NYSE: KO).
In 2012, $3 million will go to a variety of sustainable water access activities ranging from expanding water access in informal urban settlements to providing water access in hospitals and promoting multiple uses of water that empower women. Coca-Cola also will give $500,000 in operational support to the USWP to bring additional resources to African countries characterized as high-need for clean water and sanitation.
