What we believe.
At OILR. (Opportunity Is Life's Reward) we believe that small gestures are huge treasures. OILR. is a supporter of Sole Hope founded in Uganda. Young Living Foundation has partnered with Sole Hope to help change lives forever. Our products are created with your support to produce goods that can and will impact a life in Jinja, Uganda. From each product purchase, the proceeds are sent to Young Living Foundation as a charitable donation to benefit Sole Hope for education and medical care for their patients.
Sole Hope offers hope, healthier lives, and freedom from foot-related diseases through education, jobs and medical relief. One of the organization's primary focuses is to help children and adults become and remain jigger free.

What are Jiggers? And how do they affect lives?
Jiggers are sand fleas that burrow into hands and feet. Once embedded, the female jigger lays eggs and creates egg sacks up to the size of a pea and continues to multiply by laying more eggs. Found in sub-Saharan climates, these parasitic insects lie relatively undetected on the dirt floors of homes and schools in Uganda. Children in Uganda are particularly vulnerable as they often play barefoot in the dirt.
The wounds can become so irritating and excruciating that normal childhood activities - such as walking, running, playing and even attending school - can be significantly limited.
