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.

Tell Jeff Bezos: Invest in Girls' Education

While ONE is an organization that typically petitions governments to take action to end extreme poverty, when the world’s second wealthiest man asks for ideas to help change the world, we respond. Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, entrepreneur, philanthropist, recently asked the world for ideas for his philanthropy strategy. We have an idea for him, and a lot of reasons to support it – 130 million, in fact. Add your name to show Jeff Bezos it’s worth investing in those girls because every additional year of school that a girl completes increases her future earnings, which is good for her family, her community and her country.

Tell Congress: Protect foreign aid funding

The president's proposed cuts to foreign aid - nearly ⅓ - would be disastrous for those living in extreme poverty. Millions suffering from famine would be denied life-saving food aid. Girls wouldn’t be able to go to school. Kids wouldn’t be able to receive vaccines. Congress can stop these cuts - but only if we speak out. Tell Congress right now that we can’t approve these disastrous cuts to foreign aid.

Cap ou pas Cap?

L’endroit où l’on naît ne devrait pas déterminer si l’on peut vivre et si l’on peut avoir accès à l’eau potable ou à l’éducation. Pourtant, c’est encore une réalité pour des millions de personnes dans le monde vivant dans l’extrême pauvreté, particulièrement en Afrique. A la veille de l’élection présidentielle en France, Romy, une petite fille de 8 ans, lance un défi aux candidats!

Signez pour l’éducation des filles!

Aujourd’hui, 130 millions de filles n’ont pas accès à l’éducation dans le monde. Si vous en êtes là aujourd’hui, c’est notamment parce que vous avez eu l’opportunité d’aller à l’école. Mais, parce que la pauvreté est sexiste, 130 millions de filles à travers le monde sont privées de ce droit fondamental. Pourtant, l’éducation est l’élan nécessaire dont les filles ont besoin pour mener la vie qu’elles souhaitent et s’émanciper. Elles méritent d’avoir les mêmes opportunités que n’importe qui d’autre. Alors, mobilisez-vous en signant notre lettre ouverte. Nous la remettrons aux dirigeants politiques à travers le monde le 8 mars prochain, lors de la Journée internationale des droits des femmes.

Fight for Girls’ Education

All children deserve a good education. But because poverty is sexist, 130 million girls across the world are denied this basic right. If you care, ACT. Add your name to our letter, and we'll deliver it in-person to MP’s all over the country this International Women's Day, March 8th. Education is vital for moving out of poverty. We cannot afford to squander the potential of 130 million girls to cure diseases or end wars, invent brilliant technology or revolutionize an industry… or simply access opportunity. We are coming together and uniting across our divides to get every girl into school and to make sure she gets a quality education once she’s there. Join us on calling on world leaders to decrease the number of girls out of school by 40 million in the next four years. It’s an ambitious goal, but it’s one the world needs to strive to reach.
