One World Center is a proud partner of organizations who enable us to support our participants on their journey to become humanitarians!

Recycle for Change

Recycle for Change is a non-profit 501(c)(3) located in California, USA with the mission to fight worldwide poverty, to empower ordinary people to take action, to reduce carbon emissions and to create a sustainable future for all. Recycle for Change recognizes that the earth’s resources are finite and that preserving these resources is crucial to the well being of future generations.

Recycle for Change operates a clothing recycling program and a sustainable development program. They utilize clothing collection as the main source of fundraising. Funds raised from selling the clothes and textiles support other non-profit organizations running programs that enable people to take part in sustainable development work and take up the fight against extreme poverty in some of the poorest countries in Africa, Central and South America.

Recycle for Change supports One World Center with funds, helping us run our programs and thereby training people to join development projects around the globe. We are extremely proud to have Recycle for Change as one of our partners and to be able to make a better world together.

One World University

The organization ADPP Mozambique (Development Aid from People to People – Mozambique) has been working in Mozambique since 1982, directing a number of development projects focused on education, health, agriculture and more. In 1998, ADPP founded One World University (OWU), which started with a School of Pedagogy with the purpose of training teachers for the teacher training colleges around the country and the continent. In 2005, One World University was approved by the Minister of Education as a private institution for higher learning. OWU was accredited to provide academic courses from the bachelor’s to master’s level under the name in Portuguese, Instituto Superior de Educação e Tecnologia – One World University.

In 2008, OWU started a second School. This time offering a unique degree in “Community Development – Fighting Shoulder to Shoulder with the Poor.” OWU created this course inspired by Armando Emílio Guebuza, then President of Mozambique, who asked ADPP to create a course to support the fight to end poverty. The Community Development course provides the students with the necessary skills to work in holistic and inclusive community development.

In 2012, One World University was approved to offer its courses as a distance learning institution, opening its doors to many more people on the African continent and beyond. Today, One World University has more than 500 distance learning students from Africa, America and Europe. Altogether, 700 students have graduated from OWU. The Distance Learning Department currently has 475 students enrolled. Some of these students are from One World Center!

Georgia Street Community Collective

The Georgia Street Community Collected started as a community garden on an empty neighborhood in Detroit, Michigan. Since November 2008, GSCC has expanded their operations to revitalize the neighborhood, mentor youth and bring business to the area. What started as a small garden on an empty lot now expands to over five lots including a fruit orchard and a community center.

GSCC ‘s efforts with urban gardening, food production, back-to-school supply events, and more have made such an impact on the Development Instructors at One World Center by teaching the power of community and that big ideas can happen in small spaces.
