The University of Pittsburgh has declared academic year 2018-19 as The Year of PittGlobal. Please check back as we add University events and programs to celebrate and progress Pitt's global impact.
Interested in a career with a non-profit—or in developing a new NGO that will change lives? You’re sure to gain insight and inspiration from Samir Lakhani, a 24 year old graduate of the University of Pittsburgh who created Eco-Soap Bank, a Squirrel Hill-based organization that sterilizes and repackages discarded soap..
Samir Lakhani witnessed the spread of disease firsthand while volunteering in Cambodia. His non-profit, Eco-Soap Bank, has supplied more than 650,000 individuals with soap and hygiene education since 2014.
Join Samir in room 630 of the William Pitt Union on Friday, February 9 from 3 - 4 pm.
