Sponsor A Child
Your sponsorship will provide a child at the Young Living Academy in Ecuador with nutrition, school supplies, and a high-quality education. For $75 a month—less than $3 a day—you can make a child a part of your family.*
What will your sponsorship do?
The Young Living Foundation Sponsor-a-Child program is an amazing opportunity for you to support and mentor a child in need. Our model allows you to have a one-on-one relationship with a sponsored child, while also pooling the donations of all sponsors so that we are able to provide resources to create lasting change for the children and the community.
Provides a top-notch education to your sponsored child (from pre-K to the equivalent of high school graduation) that is equal to or better than the current top school in their home country.
School Supplies and Nutrition
Supplies them with the right tools in the classroom and covers the cost of a nutritious school meal; a healthy child is able to stay in school and increase his or her learning ability.
Helps your sponsored child develop creative problem-solving skills with a curriculum that fosters leadership. They also build confidence and learn teamwork through sports, arts, music, dance, and other activities.
Combines your donation with support from other sponsors, so we can collectively lift an entire community by providing jobs in the local community and adding educational experiences into the academy’s curriculum, including field trips and other extracurricular activities.
WHY SHOULD YOU SPONSOR A CHILD?
Sponsoring a child means you are joining a child on a journey as they learn, grow, and chase their dreams. You will inspire them—and they will leave you inspired.
This is what makes sponsoring a child such an incredibly rewarding experience! Through regular emails, letters, images, and gifts, you and your family can build a personal relationship with your sponsored child.
You’ll come to know about your sponsored child’s family, community, interests, and dreams for the future. You will also potentially have the opportunity to meet your sponsored child at a Young Living recognition retreat or a foundation service trip.
You’ll discover the beauty of the child’s heritage as you become a part of their family, and you’ll gain a knowledge of another culture through a child’s eyes.
Empower and Mentor
Your mentorship and direct connection will in turn give that child hope and motivate him or her to achieve more.

*The expenses for each child to attend the Young Living Academy cost between $150 and $180 per month. This is a large amount for one sponsor to bear, so we typically look to have two sponsors per child.
