Venture: SoaPen, built on a buy-1 give-1 business model, is an innovative and playful product that provides solutions for hand hygiene in low-income communities while also being relevant in day cares and kindergartens. SoaPen is designed as an alternative to sanitizers for on-the-go or in classroom use; where teachers don't have to assist students to the bathroom each time they want to wash their hands. SoaPen brings attention to products that help children learn through play worldwide, while creating aid and awareness for shockingly preventable diseases that causes high infant mortality rates.
