Commitment to Action

Safe Water Network: Safe Affordable Water Solutions

Commitment by

PepsiCo Foundation

In 2008, the PepsiCo Foundation committed to advance the Millennium Development Goals that address water by providing funds to deliver village water systems in Ghana, India, and Bangladesh as well as rainwater harvesting systems in India. The two main initiatives are 'Safe Water Kiosks' which process and sell affordable, purified water, demonstrating the potential to address the potable water needs of people in developing countries and 'Rainwater Harvesting.' These programs include local capacity building programs, training, manuals and toolkits, demand generation and hygiene education programs, quality assurance programs, appropriate technologies, water delivery models, and capital-recovery from water revenues, which are prioritized to enable communities to own, operate and maintain these systems in the long-term. In total, the PepsiCo Foundation hopes to deliver safe water, health and hygiene to 200,000 people over three years.
