1 Problem at a Time (1PAAT) was a finalist in the 2011 Columbia Venture Competition and is a social venture that displays one specific community development related issue at a time on its website.1PAAT financially sponsors this specific cause and another sponsored issue is not showcased until the money has been raised to fund and solve the previous problem. Whether it's a need to build latrines for a health clinic in rural Haiti, or to educate kids in Ghana about how learning engineering can improve their community, no problem is too big or too small for 1PAAT to tackle. 1PAAT thrives off of the idea that small contributions can have a huge impact; 1PAAT members pay as little as 50 cents a month and members have the opportunity to recommend the next issue 1PAAT will sponsor.
The goal is to have 1 million people within 5 years register with 1PAAT, funding $500,000 a month for specific charitable causes supported by hundreds of different non-profit organizations. Even if you're broke, you can afford to responsibly invest in a better tomorrow. We look forward to having you join the effort!
