col·lec·tive / kə-ˈlek-tiv\
A group of entities that share or are motivated by at least one common issue or interest, or work together to achieve a common objective.
We are a collective of people united by our passion for defending the vulnerable and defenseless. We seek to end abuses of the helpless while instilling dignity, respect, and life lessons that can break the sick cycles that plaque our world. We care for the ONE that’s lost. The ONE that’s been abused. The ONE that’s been hurt.
We Collectively care for the ONE. We know that everyONE matters and that collectively we can make a difference.
Our Collective is passionate about serving the ONE person that has been affected by circumstances that were out of their control. A choice is a powerful thing, that is until you don't have one. We come alongside those that are hurting and help them recover from their pasts and move toward a bright future.
The ONE | Collective was founded in 2016 by a group of people that saw a need and wanted to make a difference. With more than 40 years combined experience in humanitarian aid, our team is well equipped to affect change in the situations that plaque peoples lives.
Here are some of the projects that our Collective is working on. We seek opportunities to serve the ONE that is lost, the ONE that has been hurt, the ONE thats been abused. We serve the ONE because everyONE matters.
We work alongside several orphanages that offer a place of refuge for at-risk and abandoned children. We partner with qualified local organizations to ensure that the homes are operated according to local standards. We then assure that the children experience, some for the first time in their lives, what a really family is like. Our desire is that these children receive much more than just food and shelter, we want them to have a home with an abundance of love. We do this with an Aunt & Uncle program that connects mentors to children so that they have a local role model during this sensitive time.
Back to School Backpacks
There are millions of children in Latin America that are dreaming of a better future. It is estimated that 45% of Peruvian children live in poverty. We believe that education is one of the best ways for these children to escape that cycle and succeed in life.
Every year we give 2,000 children the tools that they need to succeed in school. For only $10, the backpack is filled with brand-new supplies like notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons, colors pencils, ruler, erasers, and many other items that are essential to these student's success.
Community Serve Days
We have a vision of mobilizing as many people to serve other as possible. We know that together we are stronger and that we can go father. We collectively coordinate community serve days for local Peruvian schools, businesses and churches. We build bridges between those who desire to serve and those who can be served. Together we have served communities that have been victims of flooding and fires, orphanages, local public schools, urban homeless populations among many other groups.
Christmas season is a very special time all around the globe. That is, for most kids. We going into local communities that are faced with very difficult situations and host Christmas Parties where we give presents to each child, have games, inflatables, cotton candy and an atmosphere that helps them remember that someone loves them and that they can have a great future.
Sometimes all it takes is a hug and a smile!
During 2017 we were able to provide over 500 families with a source of clean drinking water for their families. Contaminated drinking water is the single most dangerous variant in the lives of millions of people in poverty stricken areas. A simple filter can allow the family to ovoid deadly illnesses and allow the family to have a fighting chance to overcome the difficult situation they find themselves in.
