What will my donation be used for?

As of this day, we are nearly complete in our goal of establishing a soap making industry at Riverside. However, there are still a few things that require funding.

The funds we are hoping to raise will be used to help launch the sales, marketing, and production aspects of the business. On this page, there are giving levels that explain how impactful your donation can be, with even $5! Things like salesperson packets to equip young people to start selling soap, bulk ingredients for making the bars, and building a bigger production facility require additional funding. It will fund research and development of new products, establish a shipping system, and help us begin exporting internationally. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated and will no doubt help empower many young men and women to support themselves and learn valuable skills they can carry throughout the rest of their lives.

Thank you very much for your consideration and support, and remember, no donation is too small to make a significant difference!
