    Helping Mama Salome's dream come true

    Day 311

    Clean Hands, Young Minds

    Mama Salome has a dream. She dreams that one day, every child in Congo will know and value the power of clean water. And even more, that every child will have access to it.

    Salome is the Community Engagement Manager for Asili, our social enterprise in DRC. That’s why she calls her dream the “Asili Generation” – she believes that Asili can be the vehicle to bring her vision to reality.

    Clean water is life-giving. But as Mama Salome knows, so are clean hands…especially for kids.

    To get the cleanest hands, clean water is important. But you also need to have soap. And thanks to some generous friends, we were able to get soap for 15 schools in the area where Mama Salome works – a supply to last a whole year!

    The impact that this soap will have is no small thing.

    It will ensure that for at least one year, these kids will have clean hands, helping ward off sickness. And more importantly, Mama Salome will continue to help them learn all the proper ways to use the soap, a lesson that will last a lifetime.

    This change brought to you by Cheryl & Jake Jacobsen, and Cailin, Ann, and Stewart Johnson!
