We’re supporting the ongoing repairs resulting from the Nepal’s worst natural disaster, a 7.8-magnitude earthquake in 2015. Working with CHOICE Humanitarian, we launched several Co-Impact Sourcing® trips with Wellness Advocates to help with the rebuilding efforts - helping provide newer, stronger infrastructure to help the people of Nepal rebuild a stronger future.

“Building these earthquake-resilient schools is a huge accomplishment, and we are so grateful for dōTERRA’s continued support in these efforts. Completion of this school is just the beginning. With our inspiring and committed teams, we continue to rebuild several Nepali communities. We are also helping grow the local economies through micro-enterprise development and tuition scholarships to hundreds of Nepali children.”

“It is a blessing and a privilege to work side by side with the beautiful people of Nepal in helping them rebuild their lives. Through the amazing generosity of our dōTERRA Wellness Advocates and those working in Nepal, together we’ve been able to help families begin to re-establish themselves. Something as simple as having a school to attend or a simple, safe home makes all the difference. We are honored and happy to be able to play a part.”
