What is Hope

and why is it significant to the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation

Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness. – Desmond Tutu

The horrendous reality of human trafficking includes the enslavement of 40.3 million people worldwide, including both labor and sex trafficking. While doTERRA ensures that small scale farmers and harvesters are treated ethically, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® supports global organizations and projects to fight sexual exploitation. It is alarming how many children are enslaved and need our help. HOPE includes prevention, rescue and aftercare in a comprehensive model to fight human trafficking.

Each one of us can prevent human trafficking in our communities through education and protecting our most vulnerable.

In we hope to increase our impact in our fight against human trafficking

Hope to Belong

The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation® introduces Hope to Belong to address one of the root causes of trafficking and exploitation.

Our most vulnerable children in our communities are those who do not have permanent families. A majority of child sex trafficking victims were children in foster care in the United States or in orphanages around the world and need families to keep them safe. You can help children find loving families so that they have every opportunity to thrive and grow in protected homes.

The following states support this network to pair families with vulnerable children through videos: Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia – and the list is growing.

Making an impact in the United States

Today, more than 400,000 children are in the U.S. foster care system, with over 100,000 eligible for adoption. Amazingly, 60% of children who have been trafficked in the United States have been in the foster system. 

For only $1000, high quality videography gives a child in foster care in the United States a face and a voice, resulting in a significantly increased placement rate in finding their family.

Making an impact internationally

Globally, there are tens of millions of vulnerable and abandoned children, often in places that do not have strong regulatory support.

Hope to Belong supports innovative solutions that address the drivers of family separation and improve the overall wellbeing of at-risk children and families.
