Coca-Cola India Helps To Bring Clean Drinking Water To Indian Schools


Clean drinking water projects in 12 schools in West Bengal have been completed with the support of Coca-Cola India.

A ceremony to mark the completion was held at Bamanagar Subala FP School in the Indian district of South 24 Parganas.

Similar projects are to be completed in more than 50 schools in West Bengal with an investment of $200,000 (£131,883).

UN Habitat is providing $100,000 for the project and Coca-Cola India and the communication and capacity development unit under the public health engineering department (CCDU-PHED) are contributing $50,000 each.

According to proffessor Indrani Chakraborty, chief advisor of the CCDU-PHED at the government of West Bengal, said: “This project is the result of a unique multilateral partnership, demonstrating the positive effect of coming together of education institutions, government agencies, corporate and UN agency towards the cause of water and sanitation.”

Earlier this month, Coca-Cola India launched its Thumbs up Thunder Wheels digital campaign, providing consumers with the opportunity to win a motorbike every hour for 45 days.
