Cari Phelps and Jasmine Head of Salacia Salts met during a goodwill trip to India in 2018 and came back with a dedicated effort to help tackle the root causes of poverty.
Keep an eye out for our 100% natural Guest Bar Soaps, packaged in reclaimed fabric swatches, and wrapped by pre-teen girls from the "Loop It Up" After School Program in Savannah, GA.
$1 from every bar soap is donated to provide access to safe drinking water, sanitation, hygiene education and a healthy learning environment to children in rural India. Salacia Salts will match every dollar raised through these bar soaps sold through our website or in our shop at 208 W Hall St in Savannah.
For every $10,000 raised, a bathroom is built for hundreds of young girls to use, year after year. The bathrooms are clean, secure and modern and a life changing difference in their lives. Most rural school bathrooms do not have doors, consist of sloped concrete floors with a central drain, and due to this condition, many young girls do not drink water throughout the day to avoid using the restroom. For about a week a month, many teen girls choose to skip school altogether to avoid the embarrassment and unsanitary conditions due to their monthly cycle. Through building these bathrooms, we are ensuring more young girls remain in school and continue with their education to help propel them for success in the future.
