ABOUT ONE

ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organisation of more than nine million people around the world taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.

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 AIDS and other preventable, treatable diseases in the poorest places on the planet.

We empower small-holder farmers, expand access to energy, and combat corruption to ensure governments are accountable to their citizens.

Co-founded by Bono, ONE is strictly nonpartisan, funded by individual philanthropists and corporations.

ONE’s members are critical 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 organising, mobilising, educating, and advocating so that people will have the chance not just to survive, but to thrive.

ONE’s Youth Ambassadors are a dedicated team of volunteers who electrify ONE’s campaigns across Europe. They engage decision makers, work with the media to raise the profile of ONE’s campaigns and encourage the public to sign ONE petitions through online activity and local events.

We have 50 UK Youth Ambassadors and a further 25 in Ireland.

ONE teams in Washington D.C., New York, London, Johannesburg, Brussels, Berlin, Paris, Ottawa and Abuja to educate and lobby governments to save and improve millions of lives.
