Tata Consumer is one of the funding partners of the UNICEF-ETP project in Assam that works to improve the lives of children, young people, and women living in the state’s tea communities. The programme exceeded initial targets at the end of the first phase, equipping 33,000 adolescent girls with knowledge, skills, and confidence to protect themselves, increase the options open to them, and help them make informed decisions. The UNICEF – ETP Improving Lives programme aims to tackle the systemic issues affecting women and children in 206 tea estates across eight districts of Assam, which is over one-fourth of formal tea estates in the region. The project has expanded to education, health and nutrition, and water & sanitation challenges.
