Deborah, 

The name of our idea is simply titled after our organization, "Health 2 Humanity." Let me know if you have any interest in partnering by emailing me at estenson@h2hsoap.org

Hello,

My name is Kianna Estenson and I am contacting you on behalf of my organization, Health 2 Humanity. I love your organization's mission of youth empowerment through entrepreneurial training, as that is the core of our mission at H2H. Our organization serves to start up businesses throughout the world training youths how to manufacture their own hygiene products, manage a business, and establish sustainable goals to empower the both the hygienic and economic status of their communities. Our goal is to not only assist entrepreneurs in pursuing their passions, but provide individuals with the actual opportunity to embark on such a journey. In the past 3 years, H2H has started up 12 100% successful locations throughout Kenya, Uganda, and Ghana, employing 28 entrepreneurs and circulating over 20,000 bars of soap throughout their respective communities. Illness rates have dropped 25% and entrepreneurs have been able to pay themselves 6-10x the national minimum wage.

In the past month, Health 2 Humanity has contracted a 10 year partnership deal with the Bungoma County Government worth $2M USD, committing to building out a mass hygiene factory that will supply upwards of 500 jobs for the community. As such, the Ugandan government has taken note and we are looking for local organizations to partner with to advance the overall efforts of the collaborative mission of youth empowerment. I would love to discuss partnership opportunities between our organizations to maximize use of our resources and together build the youths of Uganda to be the next great generational leaders.

Hi Deborah, 
I love the mission of your organization, as it shares a common platform with my own organization called Health 2 Humanity aimed at entrepreneurial skill development in youths throughout Kenya, Uganda, and Ghana. We have successfully implemented 12 start up businesses centered around hygiene products, and employed 28 entrepreneurs in these regions by teaching them business skills, financial literacy, and sustainability practices that have allowed their businesses to flourish self-sustainably. Check out our website at h2hglobal.org and email me at estenson@h2hsoap.org if you'd be interested in looking at ways to partner!
