Global One Foundation supports over 400 children through holistic education and nourishment in one of the world’s largest slums.
-WHAT WE DO-
Global One establishes wholistic education through schools and community projects
(W)holistic: considering the whole, consisting of whole-parts and their synergy
Wholistic-Based Education: we provide infant age through high school age education
- Beauty: beautifying Kibera with meaningful messaging through art, murals, and billboards.
- Education Focus: academic, mental, emotional, interpersonal and community engagement.
- Sustenance: clean water + daily nutrition (we provide 400+ children twice daily with healthy meals).
- MindBody Wellbeing: meditation training, check-ups, emotional resilience and stress reduction skills.
- Technology: solar powered computer training centers (the 1st computer training center located in a world slum) offering access to courses in Kibera for the first time.
- Energy: focus on leveraging solar and clean energy.
Note: Construction of The Global One High School of Kibera opens for enrollment in late 2017
Seva: a Sanskrit word meaning "service" for the sake of its own nature
positive ethical and aesthetic implications emerge BY embodying global oneness
We believe every human being should have the opportunity to grow and be supported to fulfill their dreams and contribute their unique gifts to the world - especially in communities where a dream's potential, so often goes unrealized.
Urgent circumstances can and should be optimized to the greatest goodness and beauty possible.
WHAT IS A wholistic view?
Inner affects Outer | Outer affects Inner
Urgent circumstances can and should be optimized for thriving in the greatest goodness and beauty possible.
A (w)holistic approach cultivates both inner and outer conditions that are housed within social and environmental contexts.
Interconnectivity and inter-dependence are the primary lens through which we see the problem, and therefore, the solution.
This allows for optimal synergy for the greatest goodness and beauty.
Inner conditions: may include general knowledge, perspective, learning new skills, worldview and values, cognitive and emotional developmental capability and potential, cultural practices, and general psychology (attention, emotion, states, and affect regulation)
Outer conditions: may include school and education access, clean water, clean energy, transportation, social-techno-economic equality, health & factors, medical care access, computer learning centers, and the ecological setting (e.g., removing toxins, planting crops and trees, promoting art and inspiration).
Individual and Collective: similar to inner and outer, the individual and collective interact. An individual's memetic (worldview) affects the wider community. The community-worldview simultaneously is influencing the individual. (W)holistic education helps children influence the community - now and in the future. This has a generational effect across time.
