The children served by the our programs grow up in poverty, where the most common role models are athletes and entertainers, or drug dealers, gang leaders, and criminals. Neither extreme presents positive and realistic life choices for the children to emulate. The One Love learning Foundation seeks to open up a whole new world to these children, feeding them in body, mind and soul through gardening, cultural exchange, and arts programs.
By lifting up, strengthening, and educating the children we empower them to see beyond their immediate circumstances, dreaming big dreams and growing up to achieve them. They will become teachers, doctors, entrepreneurs, nurses, engineers: the citizens and leaders that their communities so desperately need. The work of the One Love Learning Foundation enriches their individual lives, but it also equips them to be the seed of transformative social change. With your support of this work, you can join us in opening the door to their dreams and ambitions, creating a better tomorrow for our global village.
Our three main goals:
- Promoting the healthy growth, nutrition, and well-being of underprivileged children. Teaching these children to be stewards of the earth and to give back to their communities.
- Developing a sense of community and teamwork as they rehearse performances for their peers overseas while furthering the discovery of creative expression and joy.
- Leveraging the power of education and the arts to build international community, thus promoting global peace, prosperity and understanding.
OLLF supports schools in South Africa, Jamaica, and the US with programs that range from music to organic farming. While we are enormously proud of the contribution our projects have made, we aren’t even close to being done.
