Each order through us, TUTU is giving $1.00 to help improve Rwanda's devastating dental situation.
Rwanda in 1994, life expectancy from birth was just 28 years. Today, that figure has doubled. However, despite this increase, 18% of deaths are directly linked to treatable oral diseases. These deaths are easily preventable and curable with access to basic dental care and education.
Rwanda currently has 48 dentists in a country with a population of almost 12 million people.
That is 1 dentist per 250,000 potential patients.
By comparison, the US has 1 dentist per every 1,600 patients.
Despite major efforts to rebuild the nation, the statistics remain in despair and the need for more dental care professionals is greater than ever.
Pledge1percent.org is a global movement that inspires, educates, and empowers every entrepreneur, company, and employee to be a force for good. Over 10,000 members in 100 countries have used Pledge 1%'s flexible framework to ignite half a billion dollars in new philanthropy.
His Hands On Africa (HHOA) is a non-profit organisation born in 2016 that wants to address the lack of dental services by equipping communities with the right dental education, training dentists, building dental clinics, to create a sustainable future for the Rwandan people.
