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.
Live. Learn. Serve. Apply Now

When you think about your travel destination wish list, a remote village in a rural side of Africa might be the last thing to pop up in your head. Especially you don’t plan back breaking labor with local people, being body and soul deep in absolute poverty and lack of some of the basics resources you are used to in your daily life, such as treated water and electricity. But I had always wanted to go to Africa. I wanted to skip Safari and the resorts. I wanted to get to know people and the way they live. I wanted to experience their daily routine. I wanted to be there with the African people. So, at age of 38 I signed up for the Development Instructor program in Africa with One World Center in Massachusetts and chose to work at a project in Zambia.

Living in a community at One World Center is both rewarding and demanding. It is rewarding because you are always surrounded by friends who you share many unforgettable moments. It is demanding because it requires you to do a lot of work as a community member, such as cooking, cleaning, building maintenance and gardening.

“Divide and rule” is a methods used in politics since Caesar’s times. It is especially advanced in our days. Politicians and media are splitting populations according to race, religion and gender identities. It is presented as if the world is full of enemies; that we should be afraid of each other and look for personal wellbeing, happiness and “just for you designed” goods to pick in supermarkets among hundreds of the same kind. We easily give in to those charms, and look for our individual happiness.
