Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits do not cover hygiene products. 


Hygiene Insecurity

Hygiene insecurity, defined as the inability to afford everyday hygiene products, has far-reaching consequences. A lack of access to basic hygiene can negatively impact a child’s self-esteem, creating enduring effects on their learning and emotional well-being. Without assistance, these innocent children face compromised physical health and confidence, perpetuating a distressing cycle.

1 in 4 families struggle to afford their most basic needs. Accessing hygiene products for families living in poverty proves surprisingly challenging, especially since many of these items cannot be obtained using benefits such as food stamps.

A Problem Worth Solving

The Confidence Project is dedicated to raising awareness about the hygiene insecurity experienced by numerous school-age children. Together, we can empower our communities to provide essential hygiene products to children in need. The overarching goal of The Confidence Project is to grant underserved children the ability to make choices for themselves and shape their futures. Through donor support, we aim to create awareness, deliver hygiene products, and provide crucial education on hygiene, fostering regular school attendance and heightened engagement in learning.

The Need is Clear

The hygiene resources and educational information we furnish to underserved students significantly impact their health. These products symbolize belonging and ownership of a student’s self-worth. Hygiene empowers students to recognize that they have choices and the agency to make decisions for themselves and their futures. The confidence kits we supply not only support schools in aiding students struggling to break the cycle of poverty but also contribute to dismantling the social stigma and alleviating the psychological burden of need.
