The Coca-Cola Export Corporation, Pakistan has collaborated with the Jahandad Society of Community Development (JSCD) to initiate a project which will provide water, sanitation and hygiene facilities to government schools in the Muzaffargarh district.
The project was launched with the signing of a memorandum of understanding by JSCD President Dr. Yasmin Raashid, and Coca Cola Pakistan General Manager Rizwan U. Khan. This project titled ‘Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Facilities in Schools in District Muzaffargarh’, is being implemented in collaboration with The Coca-Cola Export Corporation, Pakistan Branch and JSCD will contribute towards “child protection and development” by provision of adequate water and sanitation facilities in target two primary schools of district Muzaffargarh namely, Government Girls Primary School, Basti Surhani and Government Primray School, Wigh.
Through the project, latrines with water & sanitation services will be constructed and safe drinking water will be provided to the pupils and faculty at the government schools. Moreover, the students, teachers and the community will also be empowered and trained to adopt safe hygienic practices. The project is expected to be completed by July.
Speaking on occasion Rizwan U Khan said, “The ravaging floods of 2010 wreaked devastation on an epic scale. The catastrophe took a severe toll on the people of Pakistan and despite considerable rehabilitative efforts; a lot of work still needs to be done. Coca-Cola realises the need to support children studying at schools in flood stricken areas and will provide complete support to JSCD to help lighten their suffering.”
