Nigerian Bottling Company Ltd. (NBC), a leading consumer packaged goods company and strategic bottling partner of The Coca-Cola Company in Nigeria, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the implementing partners of its recently announced €1 million donation.


Speaking during the ceremony, which was held at its corporate headquarters in Lagos, Managing Director of NBC, Matthieu Seguin, said the donation reflects the Company’s commitment to enriching communities and will be targeted towards empowering youth and women, the provision of water and sanitary facilities, as well as scaling its PET recycling initiatives in Nigeria.

Key partners for the programmes covered under the €1 million donation include Karis & Eleos Hand of Hope Foundation, West African Vocational Education (WAVE), Organized Private Sector in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (OPS-WASH) and Chanja Datti Limited. 

Similarly, WAVE will undertake the upskilling of youths in Abuja, Lagos, Oyo, Osun, Edo, Rivers and Kaduna in Digital and Hospitality skills and connect them to job opportunities.


The MoU provides a formal framework for the programmes based on shared values and further demonstrates NBC’s commitment to contributing to the uplifting of communities and socio-economic development in Nigeria.

Jande Tarfa, Finance and Sustainability lead at WAVE, said the donation would enable the organisation to expand the scope and impact of its youth empowerment initiatives and reach even more beneficiaries across the country. 

The partnership will come to life in key areas of shared value including promoting water sanitation & hygiene (WASH), skills development programmes for women and youths as well as accelerate its World Without Waste agenda in Nigeria.  The donation is part of NBC’s 70th anniversary celebration and reflects the Company’s unwavering commitment to Nigeria and its people.

I really love the transformation that Wave is causing in the lives of the young people. Mary's experience just stands out. She is more equipped to live. This and more is what young girls especially need to compete favorably in Nigeria. Apart from the people that are in Lagos state, how can youths from other states participate in this training? How much does the training cost? Before I go, I really appreciate the leadership of West African Vocational Education. God richly bless you. Thank.
