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

As we see inequality all over the world, it seems natural to become part of changing what is needed in society. Helping the Poor is not simply to offer the aid and economical help. It is not a momentary fight against poverty. It is about encouraging the Poor to develop their capacities so they can overcome poverty. We need to develop ourselves and work with the Poor and not for the Poor. The fundamental idea of the Development Instructor program is to contribute to the world and promote Solidary Humanism.

Have you ever seen anyone dying of hunger ? Perhaps you have read of someone. Or seen a picture of a child in a famine or disaster affected area far far away. A number. A statistic. Part of the anonymous “poor”.
According to the World Food Programme (WFP) – hunger kills more every year than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis! Half of deaths of children under five are due to hunger.

We grew up in a divided world. We were taught to race for the best jobs, the best houses, the best opportunities, and leave behind those who for some reason could not make it to the top. Poverty has breached its limits among society. But it is through our own will and solidary humanism that we chose to make a stop in our lives and reach for them. Transform that elite summit into a wide plateau where we all fit. As humans we are blessed with the capability to modify our surroundings into what suits us best, let’s make it everyone’s best.
