Soap International

SOAP International’s mission is to create opportunities for underprivileged orphan students living in extreme poverty by providing them with educational and training opportunities to obtain higher education with the ultimate goal to allow them to improve their standard of living and promote self-reliance. We believe that by helping one person gain an education, they become better able to help improve the quality of life for their family and community by helping to provide opportunities for others. This will create a self-sustaining and growing improvement of living standards in the areas where our students and alumni reside. SOAP International defines orphan as any child with (1) No living parent, (2) Only one living parent, or (3) Two living parents that are unable to provide the basic necessities needed for survival.
