Who We Are
One World for Love and Peace (OWLP) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization founded in December 2004, in Monrovia, California by Nahid Kabbani under the auspices of the National Heritage Foundation. The basic building blocks for the organization were to educate Americans about topics of interest to the Arab communities living in the United States and to promote communication across different cultures.
“The Lighthouse 4 Today’s Viewers”, a TV show, was established through Monrovia Cable Television (KGEM) to address the lack of understanding of the cultural diversity of Arab-American communities.
In April 2008, the founder moved to Sacramento and re-established One World independently and modified the mission to increase cultural understanding of the Arab communities living in the greater Sacramento area; and provide transitional assistance to newly arriving Arab immigrants and refugees to the United States.
“The Lighthouse 4 Today’s Viewers” continued through the Public Cable Television, Access Sacramento addressing various topics affecting Arab-Americans and shedding light on current humanitarian issues and challenges facing Arab immigrants and refugees.
One World of Love and Peace continues to be committed to its mission, and making a difference in the community.
