For years, doTERRA® Wellness Advocate Jenni Wilson dreamed of changing lives with education and service. Because she’s passionate about education, Jenni started the Living Hope Educational Enterprises organization in the hope of bringing educational opportunities to impoverished children who need it.
After several projects, Jenni decided that Living Hope would turn its focus and efforts toward creating a functional school in Southwest Asia. Distraught by the lack of educational opportunities for children in the country, Jenni knew that Living Hope could make a big difference. With this mission in her heart, Jenni enlisted the help of her upline, Boyd Truman, to build a school for children, finally allowing them access to quality education.
For many young children in Southwest Asia, education is a wish, not a reality. Sometimes they don’t live near a school, while others are turned away from schools because of their religious beliefs. Some children must help support their families and are required to work instead of attend school.
Jenni and Boyd knew they’d need help to bring their dream for the new school to life. By partnering with the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation®, Living Hope Educational Enterprises received the funding they needed to equip a Southwest Asian school with what it needed to accommodate and educate impoverished children in the area. The school can now hold more students, with proper amenities—like a new washroom—so that children feel comfortable at school.
Not only will this school provide children with a safe place to learn, but attending school will also lower the risk for exploitation for these Southwest Asian children. As Jenni said, “We provided a school where there was none. We provided hope for education where there was none.”
Jenni is overjoyed at the chance that she and Living Hope have to support children who really need it. When speaking of partnering with doTERRA, Jenni remarked, “We’re proud to be part of an organization that is changing whole communities around the world for the better. doTERRA is changing lives on a such a grand scale—much more than we could have ever dreamed of doing ourselves.”
Jenni hopes that by giving these children the chance to receive an education, they’ll be able to lift themselves out of poverty with better jobs and opportunities in the future. She said, “I don’t think I would have had the courage or belief in myself to start a new school on the other side of the world if it hadn’t been for my leadership experience with doTERRA and the encouragement they have given me to be an instigator of change.”
