Joana, our founder, always dreamt of starting an organization to support orphans in Africa and Haiti, and in 2013, it became a reality. When the IRS approved Joana's nonprofit, One Vision One World (OVOW), she left her position at Accenture.
One Vision One World's immediate goals are to provide sources for food, clothing, and shelter, thus restoring hope and health. Our long-term goal is to create an infrastructure wherein the Haitian people can help themselves. We are in the trenches of the most problematic areas to build, yet we are building. Housing is critical to safeguard children from physical, sexual, and emotional abuse, illness, and a life of crime and despair. Our investments are small, but they are smart and strategic.
