dōTERRA is of Latin origin and means “Gift of the Earth.”
Children in developing countries are 10x more likely to die before the age of five than children in developed countries, overwhelmingly often of preventable diseases. 56% of primary school age children globally fail to achieve a minimum level of learning. And 153 million children worldwide are orphans. Supporting children prepares the next generation of the world’s leaders.
Nothing changes lives more dramatically than education. It can lift families—even whole communities—out of generational poverty. To make this happen in places where people work hard simply to survive, humanitarian groups must understand the specific needs of each community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that, in many underdeveloped or more rural areas, schools where a teacher can live or stay onsite is beneficial for students. Schools that have living quarters secure better instructors for longer periods of time, resulting in better instruction, opportunities, and consistency for their students.
The dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation®, a U.S. Foundation, is proud to support TRUE Africa by donating nearly $40,000 to fund the construction of teacher living quarters at the Buyomba Community Academy in Uganda, as well as bathing stations and latrines for 10 teachers and their families. This project will benefit student safety and learning, the effects of which will be felt for generations to come.
