I was back in Haiti May 9 – 13 to check on the women of OFEDA and their soap making group. Things are progressing and they are continuing the buildup of their business and efforts. Lots of soap was being made! We are still working on local ingredients sourcing and were able to pick up a big bag of sodium hydroxide from a supplier. The women have a new secure room to store supplies and curing soap in.
Our next big thing to tackle is the exporting of the soap. We have plenty of people interested in selling it in the US but we have to get it here! Haiti certainly isn’t the easiest place to do business and for importing and exporting. But we’ll get it done.
Here are some pics from the trip. Once again, thank you to all of my friends and family and fellow soap makers who continue to support the project.
