EVERY THREE SECONDS someone in the world dies from factors related to extreme poverty – 30,000 people a day and 10.5 million a year. the sheer magnitude can be overwhelming, causing people to ask the question, “What can one person do, to possibly make a difference?”
EVERY THREE SECONDS, the documentary from award-winning director Dan Karslake, says YES. We can solve these issues.
The movie, through its portraits of five ordinary folks, will show audiences that each one of us has the potential to do great things to change the world. We hope to inspire a movement and uncover a new wave of change agents and previously untapped resources.

IN THE NEWS
This week, we release the portrait of Ingrid Munro, founder of Jamii Bora, the fastest growing micro-finance bank in Kenya. Ingrid was retired from her work at the United Nations when someone asked her to assist a group of women who desperately needed help. Today, Jamii Bora has made loans to 300,000 members, and helped them climb the ladder out of poverty. Read more about Ingrid’s work at Takepart.
Last week, we premiered our social media and call-to-action partnership with Takepart.com. In conjunction with Takepart.com, Every Three Seconds wants to encourage everyone tap into their own potential to change the world. Every couple of weeks, we will introduce one of our ordinary and extraordinary heroes from the film. Last week, we started with young Charlie Simpson from London, England, who’s local bike ride benefitted thousands of children a half a world away.
