One World Ventures, Inc. Announces 1World Cash

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - January 21, 2010) - One World Ventures, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: OWVI) 1World Card, a provider of prepaid cards, today introduced "1World Cash," its new money transfer service. The new retail location will be in the heart of Hong Kong within the World Wide House Plaza. The announcement is the latest step in the company's expansion of new channels for sending and receiving money for the underbanked and underserved.

World Wide House Plaza is home to 26 retail money transfer locations including two of the largest agent locations in the world. By launching 1World Cash in World Wide House, OWVI will be directly capitalizing on the location's reputation as a central transaction hub. With a cost-effective-per-transaction fee combined with the high traffic location, 1World Cash is expecting to process thousands of transactions per month.

The Republic of the Philippines will be the first market to take advantage of the 1World Cash service allowing overseas Filipinos to send money to the Philippines via our location seven days a week. There are on average around 140,000 Filipinos in Hong Kong, of who most work as domestic helpers. World Wide House is popular with the Filipinos, as many of the shops are run by Filipinos. The wide assortment of typically small shops caters to their needs, selling telecommunications and banking services. This vibrant community is the ideal scenario for the introduction of the 1World Cash retail location.

OWVI CEO Stephen Prior commented, "We anticipate 1World Cash will become recognized as the simpler and safer way to send money. We have positioned ourselves well by obtaining space for 1World Cash at the busy World Wide House to accommodate the large influx of migrant workers that frequent this busy area. This is the first step in serving the 150 million migrant workers throughout the world."
