Hemmat Shabab Foundation for Development

We are Hemmat Shabab Foundation for Development (HSF), HSF is a non-profit NNGO in Yemen, licensed by the Ministry of Labor & Social Affairs in the Republic of Yemen. HSF is an independent charitable organization. Our work is unaffiliated and impartial to all religious and political parties and associations. We have been working in livelihood, emergency response, Sanitation, food security, gender, and economic empowerment since 2012. We are partners with international organizations such as GIZ, Save the children, UNICEF, USAID and UNHCR.

Toilet Board Coalition

The Toilet Board Coalition accelerates business solutions to the sanitation crisis through our world-renowned Accelerator; matching entrepreneurs with global business leaders and investors to drive progress on Sustainable Development Goal 6.2 – sanitation for all by 2030. Our Accelerator is in its eighth year, accelerating Sanitation Economy businesses through business model design, corporate mentorship and access to investment. To date, the Coalition has graduated 58 SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), impacting more than 2.4 million people daily and unlocking US$22 million in finance.

Clean The World Foundation
United States 

Clean the World is a social enterprise with the mission of saving millions of lives around the world. We distribute recycled soap and hygiene products from more than 8,100+ hotel and resort partners to children and families in countries with a high death rate due to acute respiratory infection (pneumonia) and diarrheal diseases (cholera) – which are two of the top killers of children under 5. Clean the World accomplishes its mission by collecting and recycling discarded soap and plastic amenity bottles from participating hospitality partners. Through the distribution of these and other donated hygiene products to impoverished people, help prevent millions of hygiene-related illnesses and deaths every year. Clean the World Foundation is taking an active role in working with community-based organizations and country governments to achieve universal access to WASH around the world. Through our health and development programs – such as WASH in Schools, Women’s Microfinance, and Women’s Initiatives – we are working to provide sustainable and ongoing access to comprehensive WASH infrastructure and supplies, along with the long-term education necessary to change behaviors such as promoting exclusive breastfeeding and making a sustainable impact. Through our humanitarian aid efforts in disaster relief and refugee support, we work to ensure all displaced populations, and those in crisis, have the WASH access they need to sustain and improve health.
