On June 18, 2018, PepsiCo Foundation announced a $4.2 million grant to WaterAid, a leading international water and sanitation non-governmental organization, to provide clean water access to communities in southern India facing extreme water shortages, specifically in Palakkad (Kerala), Nelamangala (Karnakata), and Sri City (Andhra Pradesh).

“Strong public-private partnerships drive scalable and lasting impact, and we are proud to work with PepsiCo to bring clean water to hundreds of thousands of people in need,” said Sarina Prabasi, U.S. CEO of WaterAid. “To improve access to clean water, it’s essential that corporations step up and invest in collaborative action, just as PepsiCo is doing as part of its leading Performance with Purpose agenda.”
