A Brief History
The Worldview Project was founded as a 501(c)3 educational nonprofit in 2001. Originally The Worldview Press, the organization was renamed in 2009 to reflect its evolving wider commitment and involvement in promoting greater cultural knowledge, understanding, and tolerance.
The Worldview Project is an educational organization, believing that great knowledge and understanding are at the very core of a more responsible citizenry and more harmonious relations and interactions between people of differing cultural backgrounds.
