Every Lifebuoy funds handwashing education

The humble bar of soap, an unsung handwashing hero, can help limit the spread of deadly diseases. By scrubbing with Lifebuoy, you’re helping the Lifebuoy Programme teach the importance of good hygiene habits to millions of young lives globally.

Helping kids scrub up on good hygiene habits

Hygiene habits, they’re all about education, education, education. The Lifebuoy programmes focus on creating long-lasting hygiene behaviour changes by teaching the importance of handwashing with soap at the right moments. Through this, kids learn how good habits can help dramatically limit the spread of preventable illness and prevent them from falling sick, meaning they can attend and enjoy school more often.

By partnering with the Department of Basic Education, Lifebuoy’s message of vital handwashing hygiene habits will reach nine million South African children by the end of 2019. Alongside this, Lifebuoy also works globally with innovative partners and NGOs, like Oxfam, Sightsavers, and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, to ensure there’s a real, tangible drive behind their mission.

Using Lifebuoy, helps spread good hygiene habits to millions more

The importance of good hygiene habits can’t be overstated—that little bar of soap, used at the right time, is all it takes to save millions of young lives. We’ve already brought that vital hygiene message to 426 million people, and with your help we can continue to reach even more in countries across the world.
