Clean the World Foundation
Clean the World Foundation (CTWF) was founded in 2009 to address global health issues by using discarded hygiene supplies from the hospitality industry. Aiming to reduce the number of hygiene-related deaths, it began recycling soap into new bars to distribute to communities in need.
In 2015, Clean the World Foundation joined forces with the Global Soap Project, resulting in a consolidated nonprofit mission under the banner of Clean the World Foundation. The consolidation allowed us to go beyond just hygiene to include programs addressing sustainable access to water, sanitation, and feminine hygiene as well.
Today, CTWF is working toward universal access to water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), and focuses on outcome-based programs to improve the quality of life for vulnerable populations around the world. Their programs emphasise a local needs-based approach, focusing on education, local ownership and accountability, and community engagement, along with rigorous monitoring and evaluation to gauge progress. Their ultimate goal is to have the programmatic impact sustained locally, without dependence on ongoing aid.
