Looking back at 2016, Jeunesse reports that company Distributors donated more than $1.4 million through the Jeunesse Kids foundation.
Jeunesse Kids is dedicated to empowering communities to give children a brighter future. Working at the local level, Jeunesse supports after-school programs, children’s hospitals and other projects in markets where the company operates.
“The mission of Jeunesse Kids is the heart and soul of this company and the cause-driven focus for which we stand,” said Scott Lewis, Chief Visionary Officer with Jeunesse. “We are deeply grateful for and humbled by the generosity of our family of Jeunesse Distributors and their commitment to lift up and support children around the world.”
A major initiative of the foundation is its partnership with WE Charity, formerly Free the Children. Jeunesse has adopted three villages through the nonprofit’s WE Village program, which applies sustainable solutions to the primary causes of poverty. In these villages—located in China, Kenya and Ecuador—Jeunesse donations and service trips are providing new school buildings, sanitation systems and the like, as well as training in agriculture and other livelihoods.
Company officials report that in 2017 Jeunesse Kids will add new initiatives to supply basic necessities, education and protection for abused and neglected children.
