The idea struck me when I was washing my hands in the hotel room in Thailand. I noticed that after barely one wash, when the housekeeping staff came to clean the room, they replaced all the soaps. There are so many people in my country who do not have access to the basic necessity of washing with soap and truly removing all bacteria and dirt, and yet here just the soaps were being replaced after just one wash. That’s when I decided to approach the hotels in my country and request them to give me all their used soaps. I also learnt that the soap is heated to a melting point and then moulded to form a fresh soap bar. This would mean that all the bacteria etc from the used soaps would die and once heated and moulded, it would be as good as a brand new soap. That is how I started my project RogFree. I now distribute these new soaps to a number of people and am trying to protect them from diseases and dirt, and help them lead a clean life.
