As some of you may already know, 2 of the things I love is helping others and drinking Sprite (preferably out of a cold can). That being said, I was stoked when I was invited by CocaCola on a trip to India to see first hand what they are doing there to help empower women through their 5by20 program.

Coca-Cola Company’s goal is to economically empower 5 million women globally by 2020 and they currently have 5by20 programs active in more than 40 countries, one of them being India…which is why myself (and 7 other women on the web) are headed there next week.

While in India, I will get to observe how an estimated 131,000 women are benefiting in communities such as those in New Delhi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Dasna and Bangalore, get the chance to interact with some of the women engaged in these programs, do site visits to the Soda Village and the Splash Bar and much more.

Throughout my journey, I’ll be sharing what I see, experience and learn using the hashtag #5by20 on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, so please feel free to join me.
