Toiletries Amnesty is run by a small team of people who are dedicated to building a better future for everyone, not just those living in hygiene poverty, but for society as a whole, and for the environment.
Most of the work we do is voluntary, we bring our skills from elsewhere in our lives and we put that expertise into action to deliver an efficient and dynamic service, supporting hundreds of thousands of people and working to end hygiene poverty.
