OneWorld, a learning center" has the objective of promoting an ethical and just development of Nepalese culture. Our work is in the area of smallholding farmers. We promote organic agriculture practiced through the biodynamic philosophy. We are dedicated to professionally empowering the vulnerable and to protecting the ecosystems of Nepal.

OneWorld-alc was founded in 1997 and in the 12 years since, has been a practical model of development. We hold “preservation of dignity” as our guiding motto. We are proud to be an active part of the spirit of the LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) movement, joining other companies in practicing “responsible business”.
Social responsibility, sustainability, and environmental protection are the key points of this approach.

We operate the first Demeter-certified farm in Nepal, where we develop crop models in collaboration with cooperatives of small farmers. This includes implementing crop collection of large areas of wild lands which we collectively manage. We organize bio-dynamic trainings for members of the cooperatives and manage the sustainable marketing of their products, in keeping with what the ecology of the region can successfully bear.

OneWorld products have been granted the Demeter seal, respected worldwide as the highest certification of quality organic products.
We invite you to visit our beautiful farm in Nepal to see our vision made real and our work made transparent.
