Honoring Halimo Ahmed, OWN Aluma

Category : News & Media

We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of OneWorld Now! alumna Halimo Ahmed (Maie) last week. Originally from Ethiopia, Halimo relocated to Kenya as a refugee to live with family members in her early years. She once shared her fond memories of going to school in Kenya, where being in school was ‘her happy place.’ “I was happy in school because I was safe,” she said. She loved her teachers, who helped spark a passion for education.

We’re busy collecting applications for the sixteenth year of our Global Leadership Program. We can’t help but feel that the values of inclusion, equity and social justice instilled in our programs are more important than ever. We celebrate

Congratulations & Bon Voyage to OneWorld Now! Students

Category : News & Media

A message from OWN’s Executive Director

Creating opportunities for underserved youth to study abroad has always been a core component of our approach to international education. Over the last year, we made a tough choice to scale back our custom programs this summer, so we could focus our resources on becoming an accredited school, launching new programs and enhancing organizational sustainability. As a result, we’ve stepped up efforts to work with other study abroad partners across the nation to create scholarship opportunities for OneWorld Now! students.
