Every day around the world, people are dying in poverty. No jobs, no food, no resources, no hope. Clean Compassion was founded to change those statistics by offering an opportunity to earn an income to those individuals who live in poverty.
An easy solution would be to get a better job, but in most developing countries, jobs are scarce or don’t exist at all. Something as common as electricity is reserved for the most elite individuals in countries like Haiti. Families are living in darkness both physically and mentally. Clean Compassion provides these individuals hope by offering them solar products to sell through micro-finance.
Clean Compassion provides basic business training and environmentally friendly products to people in the developing nations to sell at a profit. All products that we supply must benefit the consumer and the environment. As an example, the consumer using a clean and efficient cooking stove will save about 50% on fuel thus reducing deforestation. The stove also reduces the amount of air pollutants by up to 70%; it is a win for the consumer and a win for world. The same is true for solar lights. The consumer does not spend money on candles or kerosene thus reducing air pollutants and the risk of fires. Clean Compassion is the importer, wholesaler, financier and educator. All products are sold with little or no markup. Our vision is to pass the savings onto the seller and consumer.
