has partnered with UNICEF for more than years
across the world on projects that help children survive and thrive, from early
childhood through adolescence. In 2005, for example, The Coca-Cola
of Bolivia and UNICEF started “Escuelas Amigas,” to offer quality education to thousands of children, decreasing
school dropout rates and repositioning school as a friendly and interactive institution.
UNICEF also has been a critical partner in The
Coca-Cola Africa Foundation’s
(TCCAF) Replenish Africa Initiative
2012, for example, UNICEF and TCCAF launched a partnership to provide Egyptians
in rural and urban areas with wider access to improved water services, reducing
water health hazards, and increasing water productivity.
In the United States, The Coca-Cola
Foundation, University of Florida, CARE and UNICEF established the
World Citizen Program at the University of Florida. The program provides international internships to
graduate and professional level students from the University of Florida to
assist with projects in developing countries in Latin and Central America, and Africa.
