AKUNA SOAP - Nothing but Naturally Zambian - ethically sourced, 100% natural, handcrafted, Zambian-made soap bars.
CREATING EMPOWERMENT, NOT DEPENDENCY: Zambia is ranked among the top countries in the world with the highest levels of poverty and wealth inequality. Youth and Women unemployment rates in Zambia are skyrocketing, leaving many without a job to provide them with a bright future. Akuna is creating jobs in impoverished communities so people are able to provide for themselves. By creating jobs instead of giving handouts, Akuna Industry is creating empowerment, not dependency. All the workers are paid livable wages which allow them to provide for themselves and their families. As of May 2023 Akuna has 50 employees and has sold 70,000 bars of soap. Akuna is able to provide a safe and stable environment for workers to excel and grow their skills. Without Akuna Industry, most of the workers would be struggling to find sustainable employment, making it challenging to provide for themselves and their families.
With these soaps, it's Buy a Bar - Give a Bar! So each purchase will be directly impacting someone in Zambia or beyond.
All ingredients are ethically sourced (including palm oil), and are also locally sourced as much as possible . . . a true African product!
