In addition to the 5by20 initiative, The Coca-Cola Company supports other women’s economic empowerment efforts around the world. In June, as part of our re-entry into Myanmar, the Company announced a US$3 million grant from The Coca-Cola Foundation, the Company's charitable giving arm, to Pact. The Company will work with Pact, a non-governmental organization, to support women's economic empowerment and job creation initiatives throughout the country through a program called WORTH. This program will initially fund women interested in supporting a variety of businesses, and Coca-Cola expects the program to eventually identify women entrepreneurs interested in becoming independent shopkeepers and distributors of Coca-Cola products.
