Lack of education prevents the economic and social development of some of the most disenfranchised parts of our world. Ensuring access to quality education is how we started with the opening of the Young Living Academy in Ecuador in 2009. Since then, we’ve continued to equip children and youth with the resources to build a better future through education.
Education can lead to higher income, improved health, gender equality, and can prevent poverty from continuing to the next generation.
*Current numbers are from 2017 through June 2022. This number is dynamic and updated quarterly as we receive new information from our partners in the field.
773 million adults around the world—two-thirds of whom are women—are illiterate when it comes to reading and writing.
youth worldwide lack basic mathematics and literacy skills
children, aged 3 to 17, do not have an internet connection in their homes
more girls than boys of primary school age are out of school
We fund the building, restoration, and expansion of schools to ensure that access to a safe education is available to as many as possible.
We work with partners who help youth stay in school and provide them with the support they need to overcome underachievement.
We equip students with tools to drive community change and build self-confidence.
“Everything I learned at the Young Living Academy motivates me to want to help others, to give my best, to discover what is in me, and to be the best version of myself.”
