An Intentional Mission
Intentionality is a guiding theme behind everything we do at Saltability, from the products we purchase, to the services we offer, to the organizations with which we choose to partner. We look for groups that are making a real difference, sharing what they can with others and promoting equality through programs and service.
In all of these ways, the Citizens Foundation USA, the Hunar Foundation and charity:water are perfect fits.

About the Hunar Foundation
The Hunar Foundation is a nonprofit organization that builds tangible work opportunities for people in Pakistan. They aim to “create a new cadre of skilled Pakistanis with intentionally recognized technical qualifications,” which, in turn, gives them opportunities that can change their lives.

charity: water is a non-profit organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. 100% of donations go directly to fund clean water programs in 24 countries around the globe, with a focus on providing rural communities with access to clean water.
To further support these amazing organizations, we distribute makeup pouches, called batwa, made by the women in the Himalayan Mountain region. A percentage of every sale goes to support their cause and helps employ women in the region.
Approximately 100 women help in crafting the pouches, from the cloth weaving to the hand embroidery and stitching. For information about purchasing batwa for retail sale to help this effort, please click here.
We’re so grateful for our company, our clients and the chance to help others each and every day simply by doing what we love. We also believe that it’s important as global citizens to give back when and how we can. By supporting the missions of the Citizens Foundation, the Hunar Foundation and charity:water, we’re staying true to our own mission as well.
