Expanding Young Living's impact in Africa
Expanding our impact in Africa
We’re grateful for all the ways in which our members support The D. Gary Young, Young Living Foundation. Together, we continue to fulfill Gary Young’s vision of empowering individuals in underserved communities. We will soon be making a change to our partnerships, and we will continue to positively impact the world in a powerful way.
At the end of 2018, the Young Living Foundation will part ways with our partner African Hearts. For three years the Foundation has partnered with this wonderful organization, whose outreach program rescues and empowers street children in Uganda. We’re proud of the impact we made together, and we know that African Hearts will continue to make a powerful difference.
The Foundation will continue to serve vulnerable children living on the streets in Africa by increasing our support to our partner Hope for Justice, whose reach has expanded to include underserved communities in Ethiopia and Uganda, including the slums of Kampala. This year we announced the goal to end slavery in Africa, and we believe that our partnership with Hope for Justice is an essential step toward that goal.
Through their Lighthouse facilities, Hope for Justice Africa enables street children to transition from a life of vulnerability and poverty to one in which they are loved and protected by a positive family and community life. With your donations we are helping to support nine Lighthouse facilities in Africa: three in Uganda and six in Ethiopia.
We will support a smooth transition for African Hearts. We know African Hearts will continue to move forward in offering a hand up to street children.
If you donate monthly to African Hearts through our website, you will have until Monday, December 17, to reallocate your donation to one of our other partnerships or projects. To make this change, follow the steps outlined below:
On Tuesday, December 18, unchanged recurring donations to African Hearts will be changed automatically to the general donation option.
