What is OPAT?

The concept behind OPAT is that when we look at the totality of poverty, many feel helpless, but you are NOT! We may not be able to do everything, but each of us can do something to dramatically affect another person or family in a positive way. OPAT provides projects that are as little as a one time $25 donation that can enact a long term, significant impact upon its receiver. You can make a real difference!

 

One Project at a Time (OPAT) a 501c3 non-profit corporation that recognizes human dignity and equality of all people by assisting those who need help, and those who want to help, through creating programs and projects, opportunities and options, to one person, one family and one community at a time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


PROJECTS

Clean Water


Nearly one billion people worldwide lack clean drinking water. Water-born illnesses cause a child to die every fifteen seconds. In line with the United Nations Millennium Development goals of 2015, through OPAT you can provide entire communities with clean water through the distribution of water filters that clean up to 1,000,000 gallons of water.

Housing


Well over 1 billion people live in housing that does not provide adequate protection for their families from weather nor crime rates which tend to be higher in developing countries. You can provide a safe home for a family that protects their safety and dignity. You may also choose to donate a home in someone's name. Learn more

Clean Cooking Stoves


Almost three billion people rely on open fires to cook, leading to the death of four million annually. Burning solid fuels emits toxic fumes into homes & lungs, causes deforestation and contributes to climate change. You can provide a clean cook stove that burns efficiently & cleanly allowing families to avoid this silent killer. Learn more

Educational Scholarships


Providing a quality education helps to break the cycle of poverty. Many children leave school before ever graduating to help work, especially in agricultural areas. This denies them the opportunity to obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to get a better job and live a better life. Donating a scholarship opens doors not once possible for those not able.

Medical Campaigns


Many children still do not receive the necessary vaccinations and routine medical care that is afforded all children in a developed country. This leads to unnecessary sickness and sometimes death from illnesses that have been conquered long ago. Contributing to our Medical Campaign helps protect those most vulnerable to sickness.

Sustainable Food


Nearly 870 million people suffer from chronic undernourishment. We have all heard, If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day; if you teach him how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime. Through your donation, OPAT will work to educate and provide sustainable food for a minimum of one generation providing one of the most basic necessities. Learn more
