We always believed that “education is the passport to the future”. In 2007, when our first child was born, we made a family commitment to fund the education of a child living in an underprivileged part of the world. Leticia, a 4 years old girl from Kampala, Uganda, became our sponsored child.
It has been so fascinating watching her development since then, that we included the Child Education Program as a key social contribution to our first business endeavor founded in 2015. This time around we expanded our funding of more children’s education in more programs around the world.
Evaluating and accrediting those dynamic child education initiatives, sent us on a global journey across multiple countries.
While in Borneo, we noticed some kids wearing a yellow paste on their faces. We were told this was “Borak”, a paste made of healing Turmeric, an ingredient effective for sun protection.
Suddenly, a light bulb went off! What if we could rediscover other centuries-old healing remedies from around the world and combine them with the help of organic science to create a superior range of selfcare products for little ones?
As parents to 2 young children, plus a combined history of 20+ years in the global personal care industry, this felt like the perfect path to follow for us.
The rest, as they say, is history…VIVAIODAYS Organic World Secrets was born!
