About Us

Our journey began in 2010 when, as four university students, we took two cameras and spent our summer living on $1 a day in a rural Guatemalan village. Our academic and professional understanding of economic development didn’t prepare us for what we would go through. We battled intense hunger, parasites and the realization that there are no easy answers. But the strength of our neighbors and friends gave us hope that there are effective ways to make a difference.

Continuing our mission, we launched Living on One, a production and social impact studio, that creates films and educational videos to raise awareness and inspire action around extreme poverty.

Check out our films and videos below:
