Values | A.T.T.A.

+ Advocate: Voice for the Voiceless

There are many countries in this world that do not have access to life essentials (water, food, shelter, etc.), while there are few countries that have access to an abundant amount of life essentials. Our goal is to show the "few" that they have a voice and to utilize that voice for the "many." For those who live with access to life essentials the question then is: "what are you going to do if you are the few?" At ATTA we provide a way for the few to utilize their voice to empower the many who are voiceless.

+ Teach: Awareness Prevention

Every day over 4,000 children are dying of water related diseases such as cholera and typhoid that are easily preventable. Many more are suffering sickness, diarrhea, and acute stomach pains - illnesses that stop children going to school and growing up into healthy adults.At ATTA we have and will continue to find the simplest solutions to preventable diseases by educating developing countries on improving hygiene and sanitation.

+ Transform: Helping Not Hurting

Sadly our help often hurts those who we are helping.
At ATTA we do not want our help to hurt. We realize that our help will hurt unless we embrace our mutual brokenness, that we are just as broken as low-income people. One of the biggest problems in many poverty-alleviation efforts is that their design and implementation worsens the "poverty of being" of the economically rich (their god complexes) and the "poverty of being" of the economically poor (increases feelings of inferiority and shame). At ATTA our desire is to show low -income people through our words, our actions, and most importantly our ears that they are people with unique gifts and abilities just like us. By doing this, we can be a part of helping them to recover their sense of dignity, even as we recover from our sense of pride.

+ Advance: Pushing Change Forward

Our plan of action is to take one step ATTA time. We are always learning and keeping our eyes on the goal: to bring healing to children around the world.


The Beginning

Back in August of 2013 Sean Kappauf visited his sponsored child in El Salvador. As he spent time with Bryan and his mother he found out that all the children, including Bryan, had worms due to their poor drinking water.

Sean was motivated and decided to do something about this crisis. In February of 2014 Sean and a team of others went back down to El Salvador, trained up young leaders in the community on how to be leaders of positive change. Then those young leaders distributed 50 water filtration devices into the homes of where the children lived.

The trip was a success, young leaders were trained, children received clean water, and the local community was filled with hope.

Noticing the huge impact the leadership training had on the young kids, the communities having clean water, and the children's health improving, Sean decided that we need to be able to do this in other areas around the globe.

In April of 2014, One ATTA Time was birthed as a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization. With the hope to bring more healing to children around the world.
