Partnered by Coca-Cola India and NDTV "Support My School" completes a significant milestone

Harsha Masand | April, 25 2015

Coca-Cola India, NDTV and UN-Habitat’s multi-partner programme for happy, healthy and active schools – Support My School – has completed a significant milestone.

Support My School started as a WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) initiative that aimed to improve basic amenities in government schools, like separate toilets for boys and girls and access to water. The campaign has, over the past four years, committed to developing the overall infrastructure like playgrounds and a clean environment to encourage a holistic learning environment in these schools.

Vikram Chandra, Group CEO, NDTV, added here, “It has been a monumental effort by all partners associated with the campaign in helping reach the milestone of 500 schools. The message that healthy and happy schools are central to the foundation of a new India will be our priority and as proud founding partners of this campaign we will continue to give voice to different stakeholders in this journey. I would like to invite more partners to this campaign, as we embark on the mission to reach 1,000 schools.”

As is known, Coca-Cola India and NDTV launched Support My School in association with the UN-Habitat, Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) in 2011.

Sourav Ganguly, appointed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as one of the ambassadors for his national Swachh Bharat campaign, has also joined hands with the Support My School programme. He will guide and support the campaign in reaching 1,000 schools by 2017.
