USAID and “The Real Thing” Bring Water Sanitation to South Africa

In accordance with the efforts of the Millennium Development Project, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has partnered with the Coca-Cola Company through the Water and Development Alliance (WADA) initiative to bring better water sanitation to the Ramotshinyadi village of South Africa.

This unique partnership seeks to promote better healthcare practices to the 12,000 residents of Ramotshinyadi. The WADA initiative has so far proven successful through education and exhibitions that show residents how to practice good hygiene and the unfortunate consequences of drinking dirty water.
