We have hired 10 victims of domestic violence in Mubende district who have received full hygiene ambassador trainings. Additionally, the women are trained in bar and liquid soap making, so they have a marketable skill to support themselves and their families. The women are employed to recycle soap from several hotels in Kampala, with the new bars being donated to underprivileged local families.

My Experience with Sundara


“Good health is what everyone wants: when I fall sick am not happy, when my child is sick am not happy, even when my neighbor is sick am not happy. That is why I decided to join Sundara’s hygiene education program. 

I am the proud mother of a 9 year old girl, but I lost my husband in a car accident in 2009. As a widow and single mother, every day is a challenge. Still, I believe that I can not let that bring me down – I still have a dedication to my community who raised me.

I am lucky to be a part of this work because it’s one of the first to provide soap and promote hygiene – a right which every person ion Uganda deserves to have. I know that health is the most important thing, and through good health and hygiene people can live longer, healthier lives and achieve their dreams.”
