Who is Worldhealer?
Worldhealer Inc. is an emerging non-profit organization run by young
professionals and students, both American and foreign born, who have
joined together to work towards a world where no human is lacking the
basic essentials for a decent life. Basic essentials include food,
proper shelter, simple education and other things generally taken for
granted. Founded in Santa Barbara, California in early 2009,
Worldhealer strives for social, economic, environmental & behavioral
change across the globe.
Designed to awaken interests through the study of various cultures and
societies, the Global Awareness Clubs (GAC) and Community Culture
Series (CCS), emphasize multicultural diversity and awareness of
international issues. GAC and CCS are open to all age groups in the
Southern California area and create the first step in the process of
developing an understanding of our role in a rapidly expanding and
truly interconnected world. These programs will offer opportunities
for individuals to give back to the community on both local and global
levels, thereby forming the healers and leaders of the following
generations by involving them in mentorship programs in the clubs
aimed at younger age groups.
Worldhealer plans to work in developing areas of the world
supplementing educational and nutritional needs for underprivileged
individuals to improve their socio-economic circumstances. Our pilot
project is Estúdio - Brazil: The Maresias Project which will take
place in the beach communities of São Paulo, Brazil. Worldhealer has
chosen this area for the pilot project because of its unique
demographic and proximity to the city. Implementation of Studio, in
the municipality of São Sebastião, will not only benefit those less
fortunate, but will also improve the quality of life for the middle
and upper class population in these beach communities. Worldhealer,
Inc. envisions Estúdio - Brazil: The Maresias Project to be the model
for many more Studio projects all over the world.

lives of people around the globe. Your gift today will make an impact
