Kandarp Singh, Managing Director, Tetra Pak South Asia Markets, and Ashutosh AT Pednekar, Collector, Alwar, Rajasthan, on Aug. 6 dedicated the revitalised Khanpur Upper Primary School in Alwar under the Support My School initiative. The initiative recently commemorated the completion of 100 revitalised schools in its first phase on June 1 with campaign ambassador Sachin Tendulkar.
Commenting about Tetra Pak India's association with the campaign, Singh said: "We are proud to build on our partnership with Coca-Cola India and be a part of the Support My School campaign as this campaign aligns well with our motto in Tetra Pak which is ‘Protects What's Good'. Our motto is the foundation of all our actions, be it to partner with the food industry to making food safe and available everywhere or to stand by our commitment to environment and society. Primary education is undoubtedly one of the cornerstones of development in our country and we congratulate Coca-Cola India and all campaign partners for their efforts in revitalising the Khanpur Upper Primary School in Alwar."
The Support My School team, with help of local NGO SARD, revitalised Khanpur Upper Primary School in Alwar with provisions like a separate toilet for boys and girls, improved access to water, facilities for the encouragement of physical sports and recreation, a greener environment, library and teacher training facilities and a structure for rain water harvesting. The revamped facilities have made the school into a happy and healthy school. Coca-Cola India's 2020 vision, Live Positively, extensively focuses on creating a positive change in the community.
Commenting on the objectives and initiatives of Support My School, Chandramohan Gupta, General Manager, FBO Supply Chain, Coca-Cola India, said: "At Coca Cola, we have always believed in making a positive difference to the world around us. It is our constant endeavour to promote happy, healthy living. Support My School takes this effort further by making a real and relevant difference at the grass root level. I would like to thank the district administration led by A T Ashutosh and generous contribution of Tetra Pak which has helped in revitalizing the Khanpur Upper Primary School in Alwar. Every child we help keep in school is a great achievement for us."
