Poverty and education are inextricably linked, as school fees may prevent parents from sending their children to school, or girls dropping out of school once they reach menarche because they lack menstrual products or safe places to change their pads or cloths. Victor Odhiambo founded the Garden of Hope Foundation to address the issue of poverty amongst marginalized populations, specifically targeting youth so they would have opportunities to succeed. They just celebrated their 5th year anniversary, and continue to transform the lives of young people in Kenya.
Eco-Soap Bank is one organization that is going above and beyond to transform the lives of families around the world through the power of hygiene and education. I had the privilege to meet some of the Eco-Soap Bank team when I was in Cambodia and see them in action, and I am so proud of how far they've come. Please consider supporting their latest initiative, Project EcoSoap, as they aim to employ an additional 45 women full-time and expand their reach with a 'buy one, give 100' model to continue giving soap and hygiene education to countless more children and families. #ProjectEcoSoap #recycling #hygiene #sanitation #WASH
