To bring about EQUALITY through independence and self-reliance. We can do this by providing education and vocational training. To provide opportunities for those to rise up and change their own lives. To create hope where no hope exists. To empower human beings to create the best lives they can imagine, through education, mentoring, on-going encouragement and training. We want women, children and families learning how to survive and thrive together in a functionally sustained community.
One Wish World was launched in 2007 on a small, local level. The idea was to create an online presence for local aritisans. Each company on our site gave 10% of their earnings back to any cause they felt drawn to support. From this humble beginning, we have grown OWW into a fully functioning non-profit that includes many programs and initiatives all aimed at empowering the lives of those with less opportunity. Beginning in Fruit Heights Utah, we have now grown into many countries and are a global organization serving communities around the world.
Our hope at One Wish World is to connect
communities through friendships, commerce, mentoring relationships, and service. We are doing this on a one-to-one basis, where one person mentors one person, in an on-going, sustainable relationship. By building these relationships and a sense of security, we are improving the lives of individuals, families and communities in a simple, yet very powerful way. This is the change we see. One Wish at a time.
Nurturing the discovery of empowerment through sustainability, education and inspiration. Our mentoring program is truly the heart and soul of the work we do in the world. By connecting a volunteer mentor to one person in another country, we are creating on going change. These mentorships are structured to be long-term support for women in need. Our job as mentors is to listen and learn about the challenges these women face on a daily basis, and through offering our support and concern, we are able to help facilitate change in their lives. We see this as the beginning of a wave that will cover the globe, a wave of love, understanding and opportunity where it did not exist prior to our connection.
