Our work at Living on One has been honored with the 2016 Muslim Public Affairs Council Media Award and has been featured in major publications including The AtlanticVariety, and the Wall Street Journal.

Our feature documentaries, Living on One Dollar & Salam Neighbor, are available globally on Netflix and Amazon, and have raised over a million dollars for programs to help disenfranchised communities.
