Dotted soaps

The Soaps with Dots project began in 2015. In addition to the Zagreb Association of the Blind, the Martin's Cloak Association also participated in this project. Apriori World joined as a strategic partner for communications, branding and sales consulting. It is a social entrepreneurship project in which members of the Association of the Blind Zagreb produce and package soaps with Braille. The first production was souvenir soaps on which the name of the city of Zagreb was written in Braille, followed by Dubrovnik and Split. Soaps with Dots have become a corporate gift from companies, as well as a protocol gift from the Office of President Kolinda Grabar Kitarović. The Croatian Football Association, Hrvatska elektroprivreda, Privredna banka Zagreb and many other companies have ordered their soaps with Braille. We want to share this project through knowledge and methodology and other associations of blind and partially sighted people to try within their communities in partnership with cities, various funds, encourage the production of soap with dots and thus include sometimes forgotten people with disabilities, in this case blind and partially sighted creation and give them employment opportunities. The project Soaps with Dots continues with the production of liquid soap with the aim of wholesale and additional employment of people from the Association of the Blind Zagreb. By IPRA (International Public Relations Association) from London and the United Nations in line with Sustainable Development Goals No. 10: Reducing Inequality, this project received the 2020 Golden Contribution Awards.
