Being a brand that has been CSR conscious, PepsiCo is always at the forefront with its social welfare activities. The #LightingUpLives campaign launched last Ramzan was highly successful and has been reintroduced this year with even better results.
The campaign was set up to find solutions to assist the many towns and villages in Pakistan that are currently without electricity. The campaign has initiated the installation of safe, environment-friendly and sustainable solar lights that will uplift the life of around 100,000 Pakistanis who are currently living in the darkness.
