donations from as many people as possible can impact our community now like
never before. You can give online at www.worldbeatcenter.org or by calling (619) 230-1190, or by

Family, Community and Culture is the
foundation of Kwanzaa. It is based on the Nguzo Saba (Seven Principles), which should be practiced daily. These
principles are the foundation of WorldBeat Center and our logo is the
continuation of these principles. Here's the first three to reflect on.
Unity (Umoja) is the vehicle to overcome the problems that are
challenging us today.
Becoming a Member
and uniting our common goals, guarantees our continued success in providing the
high quality services and programming that WBC has been known for over the
years. Of our many programs, WBC has identified five that you can directly impact by becoming a
member. The Ethno-Botanical
Garden Program, Disabled Program, Children’s
Program, Media Arts Program and Arts
and Wellness Program. With Self-Determination (Kujichagulia) we can commit to having the strength to overcome
our obstacles. We need to develop Collective
Work & Responsibility (Ujima)
in order for Cultural Community Center’s like the WorldBeat Center and other
Non Profit Organizations to continue it’s programming and outreach. That’s to
build and maintain our community together and make our brothers and sisters
problems, our problems, and solve them together on a national level, on a
community and on a family level. Our collective identity is our strength for
WBC's School of Music and Dance has classes for adults and children, teaching
diversity through music, art and culture. WorldBeat Center has the most
qualified teachers from different cultures around the world. The center's 200
annual Cultural Events and programs expose San Diego Area audiences to
Cultures from all over the World. WorldBeat Center is the First Solar Building in Balboa Park with future goals to be a completely Green
Building by 2010.
It’s important for us to continue to
be open with a sense of tremendous generosity, tremendous goodness and
tremendous compassion. The more we give, the more we gain. Let's continue to
have faith that we will move through these challenges, we have in the past and
we will in the present.
