Summary

Wigs of Hope! Working with cancer patients, we have been able to see the high level impact wigs can have on self esteem and possitive attitude towards overcoming chemotherapy treatments. We are looking to make our program more sustainable, in order to keep up with the demand of wigs. We want to help all women that come to the national hospitals; One wig, costs $100.00 to produce and it takes up to two months as we only have 1 person that has the training to construct the wigs.

Challenge

There is a high demand of wigs and even a high amount of hair donors for this wigs; but we are unable to keep up with the fixed costs and production times. There is only one person trained on the trait and the wig construction costs are high. Sandra, started assembling the wigs as a volunteer but now, it is the way she generates the monthly income for her family.

Solution

The project will allow us to train 1 or 2 more people on the trait and this way we will be able to keep up with the demand of wigs at national hospitals. Also, the donations will allow to diminish the economic challenges of keeping the program alive.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact is generating at least 3 steady jobs, but even more than that is to donate 50 wigs that will replicate in benefiting in more than 150 women with breast cancer. Each wig can serve the needs of at least 3 patients with the proper maintenance and care
