One Peace at a Time is a film by Turk and Christy Pipkin. It was produced by The Nobelity Project and was premiered to a sold out audience at the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Texas, USA, on April 14, 2009. It is the sequel to the film Nobelity. It has been shown all across the United States and in multiple countries across the world.
Building on his film, Nobelity, Turk Pipkin continues his global journey of knowledge and action with One Peace at a Time. While Nobelity dealt with global problems, One Peace at a Time focuses on specific solutions. The solutions Pipkin chronicles include the model Indian orphanages of The Miracle Foundation, family planning initiatives with Thailand’s Mechai Viravaidya, Ethiopian water projects with A Glimmer of Hope Foundation, and Architecture for Humanity’s global design challenge for communities in need in the Himalayas, the Amazon and the slums of Nairobi. The film looks at the possibility of providing basic rights to every child.
