Abolishing Child 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 utilizing 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, 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.

The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is contributing to Mentors International’s vision. For years, doTERRA has donated to Mentors International to help them give microloans to impoverished entrepreneurs in developing countries. These microloans will help businesses flourish and increase sustainable living among entrepreneurs and their families.
Since 1990, Mentors International has been successfully assisting impoverished entrepreneurs to get out of the poverty cycle and build their businesses.
Because the local business owners have astronomical interest rates that are difficult to pay back, business owners cannot afford basic needs such as toiletries, clean water, food, and proper healthcare. The lack of nutrition and sanitation leads to increased risks of viruses such as diarrhea, hepatitis A, and typhoid fever. These viruses can also lead to an increased weight loss which can threaten lives, especially the lives of children. Poor living conditions, a lack of nutrition, and viruses can stunt learning and working capabilities which make it difficult for children to get an education and will sorely affect their working abilities in adulthood.
The founders of Mentors International are determined to stop this repeating cycle, and they are doing it by giving impoverished entrepreneurs small microloans with affordable interest rates. These microloans help business owners to purchase tools and raw materials, increase product variety and quality, and hire employees. Mentors International also provides training and consulting services so entrepreneurs can make better business and financial decisions.
Mentors International is finding great success with their program. The repayment rates of the business owners have been uncommonly high, and there has been a significant difference in the quality of businesses and living conditions for these entrepreneurs.
