Who we are:
WeAre1 is a registered, non-profit, non-government organisation (NGO), under the Societies Registration Act. WeAre1 is regarded as one of the most influential institutions working for the homeless people around the world. We have been partnering with central and state government, national and international donors, non-government organisations and local communities, to decrease the amount of homeless in the world. We also strive to improve the health, nutrition, and education of women and children.
We work with over 200 medical professionals. We are guided by a Governing Body composed of experienced practitioners, academics, and administrators. Founded by Dr. Michelle White President of International Cosmetic Physician Society ( ICPS ), WeAre1 is located in Spain and runs operations between USA and Europe, assisting about 7 million people.
Distilling international and national experience, we seek to learn from the poor to improve our interventions in under-serviced rural and urban areas. We aim at strengthening local governance processes that give marginalised and poor communities a voice and influence national policy.We adopt a human rights-based approach in our programmes, fostering partnerships for local development among community actors, service providers, and elected representatives.
What we do:
WeAre1’s overarching aim is to enable poor men, women, and children of all age, and men to take control of their lives and have a share in sustainable development. We seek to break the vicious cycle of poverty, malnutrition, ill-health, illiteracy, abuse and violence. Our initial focus on health and nutrition has grown further in the areas of education and child protection. Our method is to converge sectoral interventions at the level of the family and the community. We adopt a human rights-based approach in strengthening local governance actors: Rural Panchayat Institutions, Urban Local Bodies, service providers, health personnel, teachers, and community representatives, to use available resources to identify local solutions. Our programs span project development and implementation, evaluation, network building, training, and capacity development, to serve marginalized communities.
WeAre1 provides a range of services to tackle the complex issues that make it hard for homeless people and less-fortunate to find work. WeAre1 offers both job skills training and help with substance abuse problems such as alcohol and drug addiction. WeAre1 supported housing and job opportunities for people indeed.
Who we work with:
We partner with Government and state governments around the world to make a fast and excellent impact: UN and bilateral organisations, international and national donors and networks.
