Mission Statement

To empower low-resource communities through education, sustainable resources and Naturopathic healthcare.

Description

NWB is an 8 year old Oregon Not-for-profit 501c3 organization that seeks to empower low-resource communities through education, sustainable resources and Naturopathic healthcare. We envision a world where every person has access to Naturopathic healthcare and the resources to create and sustain healthy lives and communities. Our model combines long-term Naturopathic healthcare with interventions to foster healthy communities including education, gardening, sanitation, economic development, technology, and other needs. To accomplish this, we will unify our community of Naturopathic doctors, students, advisors, donors, and allies with the international/domestic communities in which we work
