OPERATING PROJECTS SINCE MARCH 2000!
Hair Aid Inc. (Australia) and Rob’s Barbershop Community Foundation (USA) would like to announce their partnership which supports the work Hair Aid Inc does, teaching people living in critical poverty, and women rescued from the sex trade, drug lords, and critically violent situations, basic hair cutting skills. Women learn these skills, and then they are provided a small toolkit, which allows them to create their own micro business. This means they have a pathway out of poverty, away from crime and violence, and control of their own lives.
This valuable partnership between Hair Aid and Rob’s Barbershop Community Foundation means that donations from the United States manufacturers and companies can now be facilitated and managed through an official fiscal Sponsorship Agreement, which will increase opportunities for donations, resources, as well as the repurposing of valuable tools.

NATIONAL ACADEMY GROOMING PROJECT
RBCF is pleased to announce the start of our 12th barber/beauty salon installation created exclusively for populations lacking access to regular grooming services. Help us to maintain operations of the 5 station barber/beauty salon installed at National Academy Foundation; a grade 6 through 12 public school in Southeast Baltimore. We assessed that 260 (or 26%) of next years’ student population will lack access to regular grooming services. Twenty-three percent of their student population will, in fact, reside in group homes/foster or kinship care.
