Water of Life
As part of Diageo's wider Water of Life programme, we have established several mini-water works to provide access to clean drinking water and reduce our environmental impact.
To date, we have completed 22 water projects across several states in Nigeria. Our work has reached over one million people in Abia, Rivers, Lagos, Ogun, Niger, Nasarawa, Edo, Benue, Oyo, Delta, Imo, Oyo, Ondo, Enugu, Ekiti, Kwara and Anambra states. Complementing our efforts to protect water resources, we work with local communities to provide access to safe drinking water through our Water of Life programme.
In 2012, the Safe Water for Africa Partnership was launched in Lagos. The initiative is a partnership involving organisations such as Guinness Nigeria, Coca Cola, Diageo and the TY Danjuma Foundation. Each organisation contributes to a fund to provide clean drinking water to millions of people across Africa.
