Inspired by recent innovations in eco-architecture, World of Difference team members Benjamin and Hunter Kilmarx proposed building a recycled materials library in addition to our traditional school construction on the 2016 expedition.
Ranger (Rick) and Jodi Nielsen caught the vision and the rammed-tire-foundation and sand-filled-bottle-brick construction for this African inspired design not only ignited possibility for the villagers we served, but it began a course of progression and transformation for World of Difference as an organization.
Now focusing on a permaculture model of systems development, World of Difference is creating sustainable and regenerative models for both the organization and the communities it serves.
Based on these new initiatives, World of Difference has refined its Vision, Mission and Core Values to better align with this new focus.
The vision of World of Difference is to achieve a sustainable world where the earth and its people flourish.
World of Difference empowers individual and community transformation by:
- Engaging world and community leaders and strategic partners, and
- Using regenerative approaches to nutrition and health, education, and the environment.
