Toyota Recognizes Outstanding Women At The 10th Annual Women In The World Summit

Shubham Issar and Amanat Anand (Founders, SoaPen)

Shubham Issar and Amanat Anand designed SoaPen to address the fact that 1.5 million children under the age of five die every year from infectious diseases – a majority of which can be prevented by washing hands with soap. With SoaPen, kids can draw all over their hands with colorful, berry scented soap sticks that rinse away to leave their hands clean. For every three pens sold in the US, SoaPen donates one to a school in a low-income community. Issar and Anand met at Parsons School of Design and after graduating won the UNICEF Wearables for Good Challenge 2016 for the concept of SoaPen and conducted a successful Kickstarter, which led to launching SoaPen on Amazon in October 2018.

Paige Chenault, (Founder, The Birthday Party Project)

Paige Chenault is the founder of The Birthday Party Project, a non-profit that throws birthday parties for children in homeless shelters. In 2008, pregnant with her first child and thinking about the birthday parties she would throw for her daughter, Paige was inspired to volunteer to throw monthly birthday parties for children at a homeless shelter in Dallas. Taking her passion for helping others and her ability to plan spectacular and meaningful events, Paige quit her job in 2012 as a wedding and events planner. She decided that celebrating others was her purpose in life and The Birthday Party Project was born. Today, the non-profit brings that magic of birthday parties to homeless children in 15 cities.
