Derreck Kayongo

Business visionary, Global Soap Project Founder and CEO of the Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta

Kayongo’s story will leave you inspired as he shares how he drew from the hardships of his refugee experience to manufacture a solution to a global problem. Kayongo and his wife Sarah created an international aid organization that collects discarded soap from hotels, reprocesses it and distributes it to vulnerable populations worldwide. This simple idea fights the #1 killers of children in many at-risk communities: hygiene-related diseases.​
