It all started with a simple message on social media to a woman named Jenni W. about the service she had done with Days For Girls in South America with her husband.
The minister wanted to know if she would be interested in doing service in his local area.
She explained to him about DFG, but learned that the children did not attend school. They were treated hatefully by teachers and other students because they were different religion.
She realized that the minister wanted to help all the families struggling with illiteracy.
So she asked...how much would it cost to rent a place and educate those 40 children?
Together the mom and the minister made a list of all the items that would be needed to start a new school. Then the minister priced all the items and projected costs to see if it would be possible.
When the total was only $7K, the mom knew that she could raise some money and enlist doTERRA Healing Hands to match funds.
She raised the funds and gave the minister the green light to gather the materials and start the school. Then she created a new non-profit called Living Hope Educational Enterprises. Within 4 months, there were over 100 children attending the new school.
