World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. World Vision serves close to 100 million people in nearly 100 countries around the world. The organization serves all people, regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.

In support of The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation’s Replenish Africa Initiative (RAIN), World Vision has implemented water projects in Ethiopia, Kenya and Tanzania. These projects include a water supply, sanitation and hygiene improvement project in the Amhara region of Ethiopia, and an integrated water resources management, industrial and agricultural water-use management, and water supply and sanitation service delivery project in two of Tanzania’s most critical river basins.

In Kenya, current project activities include increasing access to sustainable safe water and sanitation services in communities and schools, promoting behavior change and point-of-use drinking water treatment, broadening governance of water resources, improving water productivity among the poor, and testing the viability of a community water credit program.

In India, we partner with World Vision, and other organizations, on Coca-Cola-NDTV Support My School Campaign aimed at improving school attendance and education rates for Indian children. The program collaborates with Indian companies, nonprofits and multinational corporations to raise funds to bring needed resources and infrastructure improvements to schools in rural India. Through the program, schools gain access to safe drinking water and sanitation, libraries, playground equipment, trees and green space, and rainwater collection, in addition to other resources identified on a school-by-school basis.

World Vision has also partnered with Coca-Cola in Latin America and the FEMSA Foundation (a Foundation funded by FEMSA – a Coca-Cola bottling partner), along with other critical implementing partners, on Lazos de Agua, or Water Links, a $12.3 million program to bring new and improved WASH programs to more than 110,000 people in some of the poorest regions of Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua over the next three years.
