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!

Petitioning European Leaders

Protect aid. Save lives.

Thanks to European development aid, 20 million children were immunised against measles and more than 74 million people were connected to safe drinking water in the last 10 years. But next year’s European aid budget is under attack. Some countries want to cut it, even though it would cost only 5 euro cents a day per EU citizen. Tell European leaders to step in and make sure lifesaving aid is protected.

SIGN THE PETITION: Support the Electrify Africa Act!

Right now, we have the opportunity to help 50 million Africans get access to electricity for the very first time. The Electrify Africa Act outlines how we can do it, but first, the bill must be passed by Congress.  Think about what happens when this bill is passed by Congress and signed by the President: millions of African citizens get electricity. Life-saving medicines get refrigerated. Hospitals have light. Kids don't have to walk  at night to study under the lights. Moms don't have to give birth in the dark. This is a life-changing opportunity. Tell your member of Congress that you support the Electrify Africa Act!

Petitioning Joe Oliver

Protect foreign aid funding in the budget

Right now, the Government is making final budget decisions - what to fund, where to cut, where to spend a bit more. And here’s the thing: Canada could be - SHOULD be - spending more when it comes to foreign aid. The amount we spend has gone down by millions over the last several years. We can’t cut any more. And we need to restore more life-saving funding - but we don't have much time. Sign the petition and urge Finance Minister Joe Oliver to protect foreign aid funding today.
