Challenge

Oftentimes, those struggling with extremely limited budgets have previously made the decision to sacrifice their hygiene health to instead afford food or shelter. Living on low income looks like: Struggling to wash your hair when you can't afford shampoo; using a worn out toothbrush or sharing because you can't afford a new one; always wearing hand-me-down and used clothing because new outfits are too expensive; and re-using disposable baby diapers to stretch your supply and reduce costs.

Solution

Our goal is to enable schools, faith-based and nonprofit organizations serving individuals on the path to self sufficiency to more effectively reach that goal. This means we are working alongside nonprofits who provide essential services such as: job counseling; child care; financial support and education; and more. In working with these partners, we are providing a comprehensive support system for individuals struggling with poverty.

Long-Term Impact

We know alleviating the financial burden of basic hygiene supplies creates room for people to afford more basic needs. Providing hygiene items therefore becomes an essential tool in empowering people to live clean, healthy and active lives and make a big difference toward the movement to end poverty.
