The Young Living Foundation is impacting not only big groups of people by providing funding for schools, food, mosquito nets, education, and shoes, but we are impacting one life at a time, one soul in need at a time. And, each cent given is truly changing lives.– Jennifer Herbst

To serve with the Foundation radically changed my life and my wife’s life, and by extension my family’s life. To really see what the Young Living Foundation is doing and to really see where your money goes when you Round Up or when you just make a donation, really changed things for me.- Bart Shields


While in Uganda, you’ll have the opportunity to serve alongside our partner organizations Sole Hope, Healing Faith Uganda, and Hope for Justice Africa. Click below to learn more about each organization.

Please consider your personal health conditions and all associated risks when applying.

What is the trip schedule?

The trip will take place September 6-16, 2020. This means that you will most likely be departing your home country on September 6 and then departing Uganda to return home on September 16. Please note that dates are subject to change.
