Erin Zaikis, founder of the Sundara Fund, at Temple Emmanuel
Doing Good is Beautiful!
The Sisterhood of Temple Emmanuel invites area residents to meet Erin Zaikis, the founder of the Sundara Fund, the first and only soap recycling organization for underserved populations. There is no charge for this program that will be held in the social hall at the Wakefield temple.
Erin Zaikis is a TedX speaker, Huffington Post GoGiver and ONE Campaign’s ONEderwoman. Born and raised in Marblehead, MA, she attended the University of Michigan and worked in international development in Southeast Asia before founding Sundara, a nonprofit organization that creates sustainable soap recycling initiatives in India, Uganda and Myanmar. Erin will speak about how they reconvert tons of hotel bar soap waste and turn it into treasure for some of India’s poorest people.
Sundara’s mission is to reduce hygiene related deaths from diseases like pneumonia and diarrhea that can be prevented with a bar of soap and regular hand washing. Sundara also provides job training and health clinics in these poor countries for underprivileged women.zf
The Sisterhood will accept donations of unused soap for our local Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry. Those willing and able may make a financial donation to the Sundara Fund. www.Sundarafund.org
