The PepsiCo Foundation is generously providing a three-year, $5 million grant to Save the Children to help ensure the survival and well-being of children living in rural India and Bangladesh. These two countries alone are home to 40 percent of the world's malnourished children. With support from the PepsiCo Foundation, Save the Children — alongside its local and national partners — is working to decrease child mortality and malnutrition in both locations.
The combined global resources of the PepsiCo Foundation and Save the Children are making a profound difference in the lives of 600,000 children under the age five, as well as mothers and pregnant or lactating women. With our assistance, nearly 2,000 frontline health workers in India and Bangladesh are providing thousands of these countries' poorest families with important information about health, nutrition, clean water, sanitation and simple hygiene practices. The PepsiCo Foundation's support is also helping to develop an evidence base on the positive impact of community case management addressing children's severe acute malnutrition in southern Bangladesh, an initiative in partnership with Tufts University. We plan to use the findings to urge the Government of Bangladesh to include this innovative strategy for treating malnourished children in its national guidelines.
Additional Save the Children and PepsiCo Foundation initiatives are currently supporting child-focused emergency work in Japan, Pakistan and Haiti following extraordinary disasters in these countries, as well as our responses to a hunger emergency in West Africa. Further, the Frito-Lay Foundation in Latin America continues to support our nutrition education, school-based water and sanitation, and food security programming in Guatemala and Mexico. Since 1997, PepsiCo's employees around the world have also provided funds to Save the Children through their employee matching gift programs. Visit the PepsiCo website
P&G brands Always and Tampax are collaborating with Save the Children to assist vulnerable girls in Ethiopia, South Africa and Nepal through the Protecting Futures program, which helps girls stay in school and realize their full potential.

P&G's Safeguard brand and Save the Children are also partnering to reach 100 primary schools in Pakistan through a school health and nutrition project reaching 40,000 school-age children in Quetta, Karachi and Lahore with improved sanitation facilities and health and hygiene education. Through this partnership, Safeguard and Save the Children aim to address the common illnesses that arise from poor sanitation facilities and empower Pakistani school-age children to adopt healthy education and improved hand washing, toilet and water supply facilities and thus, better health and hygiene habits in the long-term.
