WHY SHOULD YOU CARE ABOUT MADAGASCAR?
First, it is a country rich in natural resources like rare gemstones and the world's finest Vanilla! It is also rich in natural beauty but consistently ranked in the top 10 poorest countries in the world. According to the most recent findings from the World Bank, 92% of the population live below the poverty line of less than $2/day!
Second reason is simply because no one else does! It is a forgotten land, other developing countries, like Haiti have as many as 1 non-profit organization helping per 1,000 people; Madagascar's ratio is much scarier with only 1 non-profit for every 1-million people.
The third reason we are passionate about this land is because it hits close to home, of all the struggle in the country the children are among those most affected. Often forced out of school to work below legal working age, serving as domestic servants, or tricked into modern day slavery and human trafficking.
Some amazing highlights about Madagascar:
- World's finest vanilla
- Word most beautiful tourmaline gemstones
- doterra sources almost a dozen essential oils from the country
- Almost 90% of plants are only found there including the ones Ylang Ylang and Ravintsara oils come from.
- Madagascar is an island off the coast of South East Africa that is larger than California with a population greater than the continent of Australia, 24 million people.
For close to a decade we have been serving Madagascar, Africa in an effort to help lift and empower the poorest of the poor and protect those vulnerable from human trafficking.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
Isn't life much more fulfilling when we can bless others?
As a supporter of this great organization since it's inception almost 10 years ago, it was great to formally join the Advisory Board of ELEVATUS in 2017 and most recently was nominated to continue to serve as Chairman of the Board. It is humbling to be part of the great work this organization does to give back to one of the poorest areas in the world.
Elevatus's main purpose is to empower women and families and help protect those vulnerable from human trafficking. Our amazing micro lending program is at the core of our foundation, it is changing lives for the poorest of the poor. We have a 100% repayment rate, and help women start or grow their own businesses to enhance their families and send ALL their kids to school. By educating women with business classes, self care and hygiene training, and also working to plant square foot gardens and teaching nutrition classes we are helping to stop ongoing illnesses, building schools and sustaining communities and helping these amazing people lift themselves out of poverty!”
We are fundraising currently for the 2nd year in a row to build a school in an area where kids are vulnerable to human trafficking.
IT WILL TAKE $60,000 TO BUILD THIS SCHOOL.
WE KNOW IT WILL HAPPEN BUT WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO BE PART OF THE REASON AS TO WHY IT DOES!
