we each need to find the courage to make our contribution to a better world

To make friends, build bridges, and use our resources to create opportunities for others

OUR MISSION

Too many of us take for granted having roofs over our heads, food on our tables, and access to modern health and educational systems. More crucially, we also often enjoy the absence of conflict and war, and are less critically impacted by climate change and natural disasters. Through recognizing the multitude of privileges we so freely enjoy, we have an opportunity to try to address global inequity at its source.

We aim to actively engage previously marginalized communities and provide them with the resources they need to succeed. By supporting educational initiatives and helping build the physical infrastructure of learning at both a primary and vocational level, we hope to invest our time and expertise, coupled with your contributions, in creating the solutions of tomorrow.

We need to break down barriers, to create understanding, solidarity, and empathy. It was the hope of Hartmut Finke, the founder of OUR WORLD PROJECT, that we make honest contributions to improving the lives of those in need.

Upon completion, a project would be sustainable, with an emphasis on being centers of continuing education and economic opportunity, allowing participants to support themselves and their communities long after our active involvement comes to a close. Ideally, drawing from our teams professional backgrounds in tourism and hospitality, each location would additionally be able to host visitors, increasing the cross-cultural and economic possibilities available.

We aim to be the engine for funding, as well as the facilitator and professional guidance behind worthy development projects that have sincere ambitions of improving the lives of those involved.

OWP seeks to partner with existing educational projects, typically small schools in developing countries, providing them with our financial backing, network of support, and managerial expertise to expand their sites and operations to the benefit of their communities.

Upon completion, a project campus would be financially and operationally self-sustaining, containing not only sound primary educational facilities, but also vocational training spaces, workshops and basic tourism infrastructure. These components will allow the projects to function as centers of continuing education and economic opportunity, enabling participants to support themselves and their communities long after our active involvement comes to a close.

WHILE EACH PROJECT SITE IS UNIQUE, OUR GENERAL PLAN IS ALWAYs the same

1

InITiation

OWP connects with a compelling project that is in varying stages of development. In Uganda, for example, we began working with an established primary schooling looking to expand, in Ghana we started off with only a commitment of land and a local connection eager to develop an educational center

2

Planning

Considering the local existing circumstances, we create a detailed plan with our local partner to realize immediate aid and development goals, while laying the foundations (both literally and otherwise) for the cultural and educational spaces we seek to build.

3

implementation

Over the course of several years, OWP guides funding towards the local project from our donors, while also providing the detail oriented managerial oversight and experience needed for success. The educational, tourism and cultural spaces we imagined come into being and are managed jointly with our local partners.

4

completion

A completed, sustainable, and fully operational site is both connected to our network and the wider community, as well as ready to be handed over fully to those we’ve been working with.

Our World Project rejects the concept of simply sending aid and donations from afar - we’re eager to build bridges, invest transparently and efficiently in communities, and create partnerships and cultural understanding with friends around the world.
