PARTNERSHIPS BUILT ON GIVING BACK
WE BELIEVE IN A WORLD WHERE ALL PEOPLE HAVE ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER, SOAP, AND HYGIENE EDUCATION
FINDING THE RIGHT PARTNER
When considering our partnerships, we do our due diligence to ensure that our donations have the greatest impact for the communities that need support most. With our first partnership in Haiti, through the non-profit child advocacy group My Neighbor's Children, we donated approximately 1.6 million bars of soap to children across orphanages, schools, clinics, hospitals, and communities. In 2013, we started a clean water program, installing and repairing wells that provide thousands of people with clean water every day.
“It is a fundamental right for every person in the world to have clean water,” said William Lowry, founder and executive director of My Neighbor’s Children. “Our partnership with Hand in Hand allows us to deliver clean water and soap to communities that desperately need it.”
In 2018, we expanded our donations to Cambodia with Eco-Soap Bank, a non-profit started by Samir Lakhani, a 2017 CNN Heroes Award recipient. Lakhani recognized a need to save wasted hotel soaps from landfills and reuse them for a greater good. Employing and empowering disadvantaged women worldwide, Eco-Soap Bank recycles leftover soap from factories and redistributes it to impoverished communities along with hygiene education to reduce disease and save lives.
“It’s important to me for people who buy Hand in Hand products to know that they’re having a tangible, measurable impact on the ground in countries like Cambodia. They are providing jobs to women that ordinarily could not secure incomes but also essential life saving soap for hundreds of thousands of children.” - Samir Lakhani, founder of Eco-Soap Bank
