Do you want to help Challenging Heights make a difference in women's lives? Do you want to help break the cycle of human trafficking? Do you want to help ensure children are able to attend school? Then support Challening Heights soap making project!
The Challenging Heights' staff have been working diligantly to ensure that this project comes to life. Recently, we have begun discussing logistics with a local artisan who makes a number of different soaps all made from local products, including: noni soap, moringa soap, avocado soap, honey soap, and floor disinfectant. By ensuring that all of the materials needed are locally sourced, it will allow for the women to continue soap making after the workshop and could become a source of livelihood.
Now, you may be wondering how teaching women to make soap would have an affect on such things as breaking the cycle of trafficking and ensuring children go to school. And the answer is this: when we empower women, we empower the next generation. According to the Clinton Foundation, women spend around 90% of their income on their family, while men typically spend 30-40% of their income on the family! By ensuring women have their own source of income, we are helping to ensure that women have the opportunity to generate their own income, we are not only empowering them, but also their children by giving them the opportunity to attend school.
Additionally, by training women in soap making and assisting them to make their own income, we are able to help alleviate one of the biggest contributing factors to child trafficking: Poverty. The majority of children that are forced into modern slavery on Lake Volta are as a result of their family falling into a financial crisis.
By supporting women we are supporting the next generation! Donate now to help ensure women are economically empowered!
