Goodnight Scholars Program Presents Derreck Kayongo

For “The Goodnight Scholars Program Presents,” Derreck Kayongo will reveal the powerful and often unthinkable, experiences that transformed him from a child refugee in Africa to one of the most respected leaders in the non-governmental organization (NGO) world.

In 2009, Kayongo and his wife Sarah started The Global Soap Project: an NGO that repurposes partially-used soap from hotels into new soap for needy populations suffering from poor sanitation access. The Global Soap Project produces 30,000 bars of soap per week and has donated over half a million bars of soap to over 20 countries including Kenya, Haiti, Afghanistan and Iraq. Kayongo’s efforts led to him being recognized as a Top 10 CNN Hero in 2011.

The event will take place on Monday, November 2, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. in the Talley Student Union Stewart Theatre on NC State’s Main Campus. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. The event will be free and open to the public.
