Every individual has the potential to leave a legacy
and it is up to us to use our talents to help build a brighter future...
In order to represent our industries as good as possible we have to work together with organisations from all nations, who are active in all layers of our industry.
Everyone has something to contribute to the world that can leave a lasting legacy. Whether it's sharing your knowledge, supporting a cause, or uplifting others, you are capable of making an impact that will outlive you. Take Elizabeth and Sarika for example; their selflessness and dedication to helping others has created a ripple effect in their communities. Every individual has the potential to leave a legacy, and it is up to us to use our talents to help build a brighter future. When we come together, we can create a more equitable, sustainable, and peaceful world. Let us take a stand, and be the change that we want to see in the world.
African Women in Sanitation & Hygiene
African Women in Sanitation and Hygiene (AWSH) is a platform in Ghana that is passionately dedicated to helping women become successful entrepreneurs in the cleaning industry. In order to achieve this, they provide guidance, assistance and training to help women acquire the necessary equipment and supplies to run a successful business. This can be a huge step for many women, as the cost of these items can be quite prohibitive. To further support these women, the AWSH has partnered locally with Contract Cleaners Association of Ghana(CCAG) and internationally with Women in Cleaning to set up a mentorship program to help them understand the ins and outs of running a successful business. By providing these essential services and resources, the AWSH is helping to empower and equip women to become successful entrepreneurs in the cleaning industry.
World Toilet Organization
World Toilet Organization provides toilets across the world to ensure safe water, sanitation and hygiene conditions. Men and women have different requirements from facilities due to: biological factors including menstruation and pregnancy; and social and cultural factors such as expectations around maintaining ‘dignity’ and ‘modesty. Failing to plan, design, or manage public and community toilets restricts the health, movement and development of women and girls, as well as older people and people with disabilities. World Toilet Organization aims to provide better sanitation, to improve social and economic well-being and offers access to safe toilets.
Gwiji for Women
In Kenya, more than 1.3 million women living in the slums of Nairobi are unemployed due to lack of formal education. Casual cleaning for upmarket suburban households provides a safe haven for these women, allowing them to earn a legitimate living and support their children. However, there exists a mismatch between casual cleaners and their clients where it is difficult for casual cleaners to find work despite the obvious need for their services. Gwiji bridges this gap by making it easier for both parties to find each other in real time, thereby exposing casual cleaners to more work while providing convenience to clients.
