WHY WASH?

Diarrheal diseases kill approximately 1.8 million people per year. Globally, approximately 2.5 billion cases of diarrhea occur among children under 5 years old every year. About 80 percent of those cases are in Africa and South Asia. The World Health Organization (WHO) and World Bank promote hand washing with soap as the most efficient and cost effective intervention to reduce this tragic statistic.

Besides combatting diseases such as pneumonia and diarrhea, improved hygiene with soap also addresses a wide range of lesser known, but nevertheless debilitating, tropical diseases. These illnesses often are neglected by an overwhelmed medical system in developing countries.

OUR WORK

Improving health and saving lives requires not only access to soap but also a holistic approach that focuses on ongoing education and integrates proper hygiene into a comprehensive program that also addresses water and sanitation as well. We work to generate a locally sustainable impact in each community we serve, which requires a localized approach and long-term investment strategies to avoid the type of unintended consequences that often come with humanitarian aid. Around the world we currently focus on six strategic program areas.
