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.

To divest is the opposite of invest. Divestment is when institutions remove financial support from selected companies in order to promote certain behavior or policy. Divestment campaigns have targeted a lot of issues over the years, such as sweatshop labor, use of land mines, and tobacco advertising. But undoubtedly the best-known examples of divestment campaigns occurred in the 1960s and 1980s in opposition to the war in Vietnam and to the Apartheid regime in South Africa.

Why would anyone who has the money to buy food choose to garden? In this day and age of specialization and technology, shouldn’t we be spending our time teaching children about technology for the future?

The strange thing is that gardening does much more than just replacing food that you buy at the grocery store. Here are five basic practical benefits of school gardening.

There is no doubt that our climate is changing. Changes in rainfall patterns (less frequent, more intense rainfall). Greater incidence of drought. Sea level rise. Etcetera.
The poor in the world bear the brunt of this. Many rely on agriculture to survive – drought and changing rainfall patterns endanger this. Many live by the coast – sea level rise forces them to move. The poor lack the resources, and sometimes the mobility, to adapt to the changing climate.
