For The Coca-Cola Company, education is one of the keys to socioeconomic development, and we create, build and encourage educational programs for students of all ages. Our programs focus on building educational infrastructure; mentoring; school drop-out prevention; reading and literacy; scholarships; business-education partnerships; and other local needs. 

Support to education in Pakistan by The Coca-Cola Export Corporation (TCCEC) extends from primary school level to university level. Our most recent intervention has been the sponsorship of a new primary school in Muzaffargarh, a less developed region of the country which was amongst the hardest hit areas during the countrywide floods of 2010 and 2011. The school has been constructed by The Citizens Foundation (TCF), a leading education-sector NGO of Pakistan which operates over 750 schools throughout Pakistan. TCF will be responsible for the school's operation and TCCEC will continue to bear the operational costs for a number of years.

In line with the success of Coca-Cola TCF Campus Muzaffargarh, second campus is being constructed in the district of Kasur, near Lahore. The campus builds on the The Company’s commitment to education and well-being of our youth.

Previously, in 2005, TCCEC responded to the government's 'Adopt-a-School' program, and adopted five government owned and operated primary and secondary schools. Our support included building of classrooms and play areas, providing furniture and fixtures, providing free books and refurbishment of premises from time to time.

TCCEC also regularly supports another education-sector NGO, The CARE Foundation, for providing free education to underprivileged children of Punjab province.

The Coca-Cola Export Corporation (TCCEC) has set-up an endowment fund (courtesy of The Coca-Cola Foundation) at Pakistan's leading institution of higher education, the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS). The income from the endowment fund is being used to cover the entire education cost for two students for a four year undergraduate degree program at LUMS's School of Science & Engineering. These students, Coca-Cola Scholars, were selected for support purely on merit and belong to less privileged areas of Pakistan. One of our Coca-Cola scholars has recently graduated in USA, securing a degree on PhD from Carnegie Mellon University.
