How you can help. At One World Center we have created a program where you can live, learn and serve The Poor to help end poverty for over half of humanity. We believe that poverty is the biggest social problem of our time and by joining together we can make the world a better place for all.
At one of our three locations you can sign up for our work-study programs where you can serve The Poor by learning to become a development instructor and work alongside The Poor in developing nations.
We send teams of ten out into the world four times a year. Join us today to help end poverty and begin your humanitarian career.

The vision of UNAIDS from 2011 to 2015 is: Zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDS-related deaths. These are, of course, very big ambitions to have on behalf of all countries, but there are no doubts that such goal helps everyone to stay focused and work in the same direction. As we all know, HIV-AIDS is closely related with poverty, a fact also illuminated by the studies presented below.
Here we will summarize briefly the current situation and future outlook in Russia, the USA, and in Africa (the continent, and Ghana as a specific example). Our summaries come from the country AIDS reports that they have sent to UNAIDS, which you can read online.It is clear that in all countries struggling to get HIV under control there are common issues: discrimination, poverty, lack of knowledge about HIV, and limited or no access to treatment.
We support the UN's Universal Declaration of Human Rights created in 1948. This statement of dignity and inalienable rights to all members of humanity is the basis for freedom, peace and justice in the world.
OWC was pleased to attend the annual conference at Harvard this year. The theme focused on how all development participants need to adapt to a world changing as we reach the end of the MDG for 2015. If you would like to learn more please see the videos here.
This global movement to fight extreme poverty asks only for your voice. Yet, over three million people around the world click, sign, call and write letters together to let governments know that 1 billion people suffering poverty is intolerable. It works! Lend your voice today.
