Clean hands, healthy children!

Wanting to change the world may seem naive. But there is no other world in exchange and somebody has to do it. Wishing to make it better is human and natural. It is what takes you out of the individual cage and makes you realise that you are part of a whole, part of the community, part of one big family.

Driven by big dreams, we joined hands with Rotary Club Oradea 1113, a local organisation of active members with community-based interests through education, health and social entrepreneurship. They aim to attract community interest and commitment to current projects of interest that become self-sustaining. Projects to make the difference at the end of the day. It all started from the idea that hand washing with soap is the most effective and inexpensive way to prevent various illnesses affecting millions of children a year. Proper hygiene can save us from over 200 diseases and is one of the most effective and cheapest tools for states to cut down cost in public health. This is how ”CLEAN HANDS, HEALTHY CHILDREN” campaign started.

The campaign was launched on the 13th of March 2017 at the school from Astileu, where 34 children between the ages of 6 and 10 were taught though an interactive workshop how to properly wash hands. They washed their hand with Rotary Soap, a a soap containing only 100% natural ingredients such as thermal water, coconut oil, shea butter, turmeric and lavender essential oil. A soap handmade with love by Skin Novels for Rotary. Companies are invited to enter into an active partnership and join hands in educating the children on the importance of hand washing. When buying a Rotary soap, two small soaps reach a child who will be taught how to wash his hands, how to use water as a precious resource and why is it important to recycle and use recycled paper.

The Rotary Soap, handmade by Skin Novels, is packed in a customised story that highlights the importance of proper hand hygiene. In addition, the natural soap packaging is made out of 100% recycled cardboard, the importance of recycling being another aspect to be highlighted in the campaign. That is because a cleaner tomorrow means not only clean hands but also a cleaner world. It does not matter if you take small steps, the only thing that matters is to move forward. And the world can only be a better place if we walk them together.
