Solve Ninja is a platform by Reap Benefit that activates young citizens to solve small problems that leave a big dent on their local communities.

The Urgency for Solve Ninjas

Today, we are facing a crisis in our local communities. Despite choking air pollution, foaming lakes, enormous garbage dumps and killer potholes noticeably plaguing our communities, less than 1% of citizens are actively engaged.

We strongly believe solving complex problems such as these, need all hands on deck.
