This is where the Young Living Foundation began. Young Living Founder D. Gary Young and Co-Founder and CEO Mary Young built the Young Living Academy, Ecuador in 2009. The Young Living Academy now educates 350 students in grades pre-K through 12, with highly successful outcomes. While many children in Ecuador drop out of school by the eighth grade and only 20 percent of local students graduate from high school, the Academy maintains a 97 percent attendance rate, and 100 percent of our seniors have graduated each year!

In 2015 major earthquakes in Nepal claimed nearly 9,000 lives and destroyed more than 900,000 homes, tragically leaving millions without roofs over their heads. Seeing a desperate need, the Young Living Foundation successfully rebuilt the primary school and all the homes in Yarsa, Nepal, a mountain village completely destroyed by these earthquakes. The Foundation will continue to rebuild Nepal as we turn our focus to restoring 16 schools and building two centers for women in another neglected community.

The mission of Hope for Justice is to end human trafficking and modern-day slavery in our generation. The Young Living Foundation is joining the fight by fully funding 10 of Hope for Justice’s Lighthouse Centers: five in Ethiopia, three in Uganda, and two in Cambodia. Each Lighthouse Center provides children rescued from slavery or from the streets with a safe place to heal, recover, and learn. The Foundation also funds the Shine Career School in Cambodia, where girls recovering from the trauma of human trafficking receive education and vocational training and are empowered to follow their dreams in a career field of their choice.

Thousands of children and adults in Uganda are victims of parasitic insects called jiggers. Jiggers burrow into an individual’s feet and can cause life-threatening infections. Worse still, individuals with jiggers are often bullied and ostracized. One of Sole Hope’s primary focuses is to help children and adults become and remain jiggerfree. In January 2019 we opened the Young Living Foundation Hope Center for Sole Hope. This new facility will employ 36 care workers in Uganda and is projected to serve 1,600 patients with severe jigger cases each year.

Healing Faith Uganda provides malaria education, prevention, and treatment to rural villages. In Uganda 42 children die each day from malaria, and it is the leading cause of death on the continent for children under the age of five. With the Young Living Foundation Malaria Center, this organization will be able to provide 80,000 individuals in the surrounding area with access to malaria treatment. With just $1 USD, Healing Faith can test and treat a child with malaria. We believe no child should die and no parent should lose a child for want of $1. Every penny counts when it comes to fighting this preventable and curable disease.
