1to1 Movement is making an impact
Let’s count the ways:
1) COLLABORATIVE CONFERENCE
A Place At The Table Conference in San Diego is uniting “a business leader, a policy maker, an educator, a non-profit professional, and a youth activist” at each table to discuss how to change the world for the better. GENIUS! You can participate for only $11 for two days of collaboration, inspiration and action. Register NOW!
2) CHILD EDUCATION
"Our goal is to start the conversation and inspire students to innovate ways they can participate in preserving the environment."
There are programs offered for students in Kindergarten through 12th grades:
- Intro to Sustainability
- The Away Project
- Powerful Program
Beauty is in the eye (or ear) of the beholder.
"We filmed some of the children who learned to play violin, flute, drums, cello, string bass, and more – all made from recycled metal drums, tin cans, and plastic pipes."

The compelling story of transformation
In Paraguay and other third-world countries, children are born and live their entire lives in a dump. Surrounded by other people’s trash. Most of this trash is even sent to these landfills from more prosperous countries. Imagine, wealthy countries cannot even dispose of their own trash, they must send it away, out of their site and smell.
The families, living on this landfill, then sort through this trash daily to sell anything of value. They eat, sleep, play, learn and live entirely in the dump. This is an unsafe and unsanitary environment and, as you can imagine, emanates a horrible odor. Certainly, a story that needed to be told about injustice and exploitation of the poor. How could we stand by and watch people live under these conditions?
Then, the story gets better. Cola, a garbage picker, and Favio Chavez, musician, helped to transform this trash into hope and beauty for these impoverished children. They made instruments and learned how to play. Now, known as the “The Recycled Orchestra of Cateura.” Perhaps, they won’t have to live their entire life in the landfill. Perhaps, there is hope. Perhaps, this will bring humanity closer to these impoverished families and portray them as skillful, talented and viable world citizens.Read More »
