What is One World Heart Project?
OWHP is a non profit dedicated to raising awareness about the health benefits of giving and goodness. We are committed to empowering people with information that inspires them to take action and build relationships that promote loving behaviors at home, at work and in life. We offer the ONLY value centric, evidenced-based wellness programs for schools and businesses, as well as, self directed home programs for men and women.
One World Heart Project welcomes EVERYONE who is willing to follow the wisdom of their hearts and challenge themselves, each day, to be conscious of their power to inspire others through simple acts of kindness. We are also calling on Americans to take the lead in this noble effort to transform our world. America is one of the most diverse, innovative nations on earth and has the potential to not only imagine the best for humankind but can lead the way. It’s time to choose the side of Good. The side that empowers are better nature. The Statue of Liberty is a symbol of the shining light that welcomes people to our shore. It’s time to shine brighter.
The following statement represents the hope of America…
… It is my belief that America is destined to contribute to the advancement of global civilization. We should consider America not as an ordinary country but as a “smaller version of the world.” Anyone who agrees with the principles championed by America can become its citizen, demonstrate their talents and contribute to social development. It was this capacity to accept and exploit diversity that propelled America into its leadership position in the world.
America is a “melting pot” where people with varied cultural backgrounds combine to create an American culture that has made a considerable impact on global civilization. And the proportion of non-Europeans continues to grow within the American population. I have always considered America — a smaller version of our world — as a grand “testing ground” for the entire human population on earth. It is a testing ground where diverse peoples coexist, cooperate and create innovation. If this experiment succeeds in America, there is hope that mankind may succeed on a global scale. If it fails, mankind can expect no bright future. America exemplifies the future of mankind.

One World Heart Project believes the words of Yuji Miyamoto powerfully express the opportunity that exists for Americans. People dream of coming to America for the opportunities that it offers, the freedom that it ensures and the right to pursue happiness. One World Heart Project dreams of a time when people around the world look to America as a country that strives to inspire the heart of the world.
