At 17 years old, John Cefalu traveled to Kenya on a service trip expecting to be welcomed as a hero. After two weeks in Kenya, he realized that the real heroes were the people he met who cared more about each other than their possessions. Seeing this happiness, in spite their impoverished hygienic conditions, sparked an idea that he thought could change the world one bar of soap at a time. With no experience, he started making soap in his dorm room and developed the recipe that we still use to this day Since that first trip, Health 2 Humanity has been able to provide people all over the globe with the opportunity to fight poverty and disease at the root. Using soap as a vehicle to develop people, he started a movement that not only creates jobs and develops communities, but cleans the world.
Hope Develops People, Soap Develops Jobs
We believe the world’s most pressing issues can be solved by developing people to sustainably solve their own problems. Every time you buy a Bar of Hope you helping us walk alongside dreamers around the world to help them start their own businesses, educate their communities, and distribute hygiene products to areas around the world that desperately need it. Poverty can’t be defeated, and diseases can’t be eradicated, if we don’t focus on the world’s most valuable resource; PEOPLE!
