Clean the World’s First Soap Delivery to Africa



A friend of the Clean the World family, Amy Sindler recently took some of our recycled soaps to Africa to distribute to children in Lesotho, the southern most landlocked country in the world. Amy is an Orlando resident and friend of Steve Cooper, Clean the World Operations Director. Amy first went to Lesotho as a member of the Peace Corps. Lesotho is one of the poorest countries in the world. According to Human Development Indices about 40% of its population live below the international poverty line of $1.25 per day.

Amy was kind enough to send us a post card and picture of her efforts.


“The children and adults here in the village of Nyakosoba, Lesotho loved getting the soap! I put it on a table and let everyone choose what type of soap they wanted. Of course the children liked the ducks, hearts and stars! By the way, they are wearing shirts donated by Track Shack. The children were given an apple then the t-shirt and we did a fun run through the village. When we returned we sang the Lesotho national anthem. They got another apple and then selected soap.
Thank you.
Amy”

We are grateful for your good works Amy. We are proud to have you as part of the Clean the World family!
