Healing Hands Foundation
The Healing Hands Foundation is one of the many reasons we love working with doTERRA, you can find out more about it below.
The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® is working to empower people and communities worldwide to make a positive change.
Through partnerships for global impact, matching support for Wellness Advocate Projects and by facilitating community development projects in Co-Impact Sourcing® areas - people are empowered and lives are changed.
The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® is proud to be partners with the micro-lending organisation, Mentors International. Providing credit to those who would otherwise not have financing opportunities or whose only lending options are with unethical and even dangerous lenders, the microcredit fund helps lift the poor from poverty while elevating communities through economic development.
Mentors International was founded in 1990 and works in developing countries to alleviate extreme poverty. This goal is accomplished by helping the hardworking poor grow small business enterprises using the principles of microcredit and self-reliance—a "hand up" not a "handout."
Mentors International provides start-up support, training, and loan capital for its partner organizations. Since the inception of the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation’s partnership with Mentors International, millions of individuals in developing countries have broken the cycle of poverty and learned to make a difference in their communities through the formation of small businesses with loans managed by Mentors International. Mentors International extends loans to people of all creeds and faiths and strives to mentor clients with proven business principles to ensure prolonged success.
Combating Sex Trafficking
The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® is proud to be partnering with Operation Underground Railroad (OUR Rescue) to bring healing and hope to the world. OUR Rescue exists to rescue children from sex trafficking by utilising some of the world’s experts in extraction operations and anti-child trafficking efforts.
OUR Rescue’s Jump Team, consisting of former CIA, Navy SEALs, and Special Ops operatives, who lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts to rescue children being trafficked for sex. To ensure perpetuity and sustainability of these extraction efforts, OUR Rescue works with law enforcement in the countries where they rescue children to ensure that everything is done legally and with the support of the local authorities.
The children rescued from these extraction efforts are then rehabilitated by OUR Rescue’s aftercare program, and the perpetrators are arrested, tried, and convicted to ensure that they don’t traffic children again.
