The Dignity Pack Project

The Dignity Pack Project supplies people experiencing homelessness in Atlanta, Georgia with basic hygiene supplies, period supplies, condoms, and PPE. Supplies have been adjusted over time to adapt to the shifting realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, and more importantly, based on systematically collected feedback from those experiencing homelessness. Through this process, kits are not pre-packaged. Instead a handful of each item are set up at a table where people can shop for the type and number of items they want. Centering the preferences and needs of people experiencing homelessness as part of refining the type, size, style and volume of products in each kit presents a humanist, rights-based approach to harm reduction efforts. To date, the project has distributed over 950 kits.

Wish for Wash

According to the World Health Organization, over 4 billion people lack access to safely managed sanitation, which is a statistic that disproportionately hinders the livelihoods of women, girls and other marginalized groups globally. In response to this reality, our growing mission is to amplify more diverse voices and inclusive innovations in the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and global health sectors through the lens of research, design and education because #everybodypoops
