Initially, we wanted to donate 10% of our profits to a refugee interest NGO, we however hope to sponsor 3 refugees to attend the workshop to take away zero waste management strategies to share among their respective communities. We hope to give people agency and means to create DIY products as they do not have an income and are wholly dependent on a government subsidy which does not cover personal hygiene products.
