Our organization is dedicated to enhancing the lives of underprivileged children through construction of schools and health education.


World of Difference was founded by Kindee Nielsen Dixon, Jodi Nielsen and Dr. Rick (Ranger) Nielsen in 2006 during which time seven schools have been built or modified. From 1998-2006, the founders were involved with other organizations under which an additional five schools were constructed.
