We want to get to meet you and chat about your interest and tell you about ONE and how you can join us to make tangible impacts around the world. Our first meeting will be on Tuesday 4th of October 2022 from 6-7pm at Franklin Motors(601 W. Franklin Street).

ONE is a global movement campaigning to end extreme poverty and preventable disease by 2030, so that everyone, everywhere can lead a life of dignity and opportunity.

We believe the fight against poverty isn’t about charity, but about justice and equality.

Whether lobbying political leaders in world capitals or running cutting-edge grassroots campaigns, ONE pressures governments to do more to fight extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa, and empowers citizens to hold their governments to account.

ONE’s supporters are crucial to this work. They come from every walk of life and from across the political spectrum. They’re artists and activists, faith and business leaders, students and scientists. They take action day in, day out — organizing, mobilizing, educating, and advocating so that people will have the chance not just to survive, but to thrive.

ONE teams in Abuja, Berlin, Brussels, Dakar, Johannesburg, London, New York, Ottawa, Paris and Washington DC, educate and lobby governments to shape policy solutions that save and improve millions of lives — and which every year are under threat from cuts and other priorities.

Co-founded by Bono and other activists, ONE is strictly nonpartisan. ONE is not a grant-making organization and does not solicit funding from the public or receive government funds.
ONE is funded almost entirely by foundations, individual philanthropists and corporate partners.

Collectively, students and young people have defined social movements, decided elections, and changed the course of history. When we rally our voices as activists and advocates for the issues we care most passionately about, our elected leaders listen.

ONE Campus creates change by mobilizing college students across the country to learn about extreme global poverty and the challenges it creates; campaigning on campus about the opportunity to eradicate extreme poverty; and advocating for smart, lifesaving investments and US development policies.

It’s not easy work, but the numbers don’t lie. Since 1990, the number of people living in extreme poverty has been cut by 60%. As we continue and improve our work and make our voices heard, we can see an end to extreme poverty in our lifetimes.
