One World Week is a development education charity (Registered Charity Number: 1107762).
OWW aims to raise awareness of how everyone can play their part in building a just, sustainable and peaceful world; it provides online ideas, coordination and support for people organising One World Week activities in their locality and links to material for sharing on social media. We are increasingly dependent on donations from individual local supporters.
We need donations to continue to maintain the website, to commission new resources, pay the expenses of volunteers and to pay for a part-time Co-ordinator. The role of the Co-ordinator is to orchestrate the work of committed volunteers who manage the activity and seek new partnerships and funding for projects in the absence of a full-time officer.
We no longer have a staffed OWW office and volunteers work from home though we are exploring the possibility of 'hot desking' in partners' offices
One-off appeals in previous years have demonstrated the value afforded to One World Week by a host of supporters across the country and beyond.
Our aim is to obtain more stable income through regular donations to provide security and continuity to enable more pro-active work and long-term planning to be undertaken.
