ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of nearly 4 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Not politically partisan, we raise public awareness and press political leaders to combat AIDS and preventable diseases, increase investments in agriculture and nutrition, and demand greater transparency in poverty-fighting programs. ONE is not a grant-making organization and does not solicit funding from the public or receive government funding. ONE is funded almost entirely by foundations, individual philanthropists and corporations. We achieve change through advocacy. Our teams in Washington, D.C., New York, London, Johannesburg, Brussels, Berlin, and Paris educate and lobby governments to shape policy solutions that save and improve millions of lives.

Join the Movement for Women and Girls

When girls get an education, they are less likely to become child brides, contract HIV, and they have greater their economic opportunities for the rest of their lives, which is good for everyone. That's why ONE is organizing one of our biggest global days of advocacy yet on International Women's Day - March 8, 2017. We'll organize people across the country and around the world to make sure that girls and women are at the heart of our poverty-fighting strategy by promoting their access to education. You can help change the world by empowering women and girls everywhere: Join the movement today and add your name in solidarity as we build to a massive day of advocacy on International Women's Day.

Make universal internet access a reality

Access to the internet isn’t a luxury, it’s life-changing. But right now, like poverty, it’s sexist. Women and girls living in the world’s poorest countries are 31% less likely to have access to the Internet than [boys and] men - and the gap is increasing.  For many of us, the internet is something that's taken for granted. Yet for millions of people, an internet connection goes beyond organizing their lives, it can provide life saving information.  We need world leaders to commit to an ambitious plan to connect 350 million women and girls in the least developed countries by 2020, deliver affordable access, and ensure that they have the skills, education and literacy to use the Internet.
