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.

Brazil is the largest country of Latin America, with a population of near 200 million inhabitants, and like other countries of this continent suffers with inequality (where 21.4 % of the population live below the poverty line).
I am from Brazil. I am 31 years old, and I am a regular middle-class Brazilian. I pay my taxes regularly as an employee, and I consume many kinds of products. The city I live in is São Paulo - a city where you can see all the inequality just by walking around (you can see very fancy stores and if you continue walking just ten more minutes you are near a slum). It is because of this difference that violence is common in Brazilian cities. If you see the list of the fifty most violent cities in the world fifteen are in Brazil.

At One World Center we have a tradition: annually staff, participants, and guests from OWC Michigan and Massachusetts meet for two days at OWC Michigan for our Development Conference. We discuss, conclude and produce knowledge about an issue that we have in common. It is a good opportunity for us to meet and get to know each other.
This year our theme was “Global warming and climate change”, which we consider is the biggest threat to the future of mankind, and especially of the poor.
