Procter and Gamble (P&G) is now accelerating its efforts to help provide clean drinking water to even more people by delivering 25 billion litres worldwide by 2025.
'The move comes as the company is celebrating the achievement of its 2020 goal of delivering 15 billion litres of clean drinking water through its non-profit Children’s Safe Drinking Water (CSDW) Program', the group said in a statement.

P&G launched its programme in 2004, and has worked with over 150 partners to raise awareness of the global water crisis and provide water to families in more than 90 countries.
To date, P&G’s efforts to provide access to clean water are transforming communities by improving health, enabling education and increasing economic opportunities.
“We are proud to have reached this 15 billion litre milestone and inspired by the opportunity to make an even greater impact through our new goal,” said David Taylor, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of P&G.
“This life-changing technology has helped many families over the past 15 years, and we’re eager to help even more in the years to come.”
Going forward, P&G has announced that it will collaborate with World Vision, Save the Children, Walmart International, and Care, to provide water to struggling communities.
