ONE is a grassroots advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease by raising public awareness. ONE and its partners, have played an important role in persuading governments to support effective programs and policies that are making a measurable difference in fighting extreme poverty and disease.
As a result of those programs, today nearly 4 million Africans have access to life-saving AIDS medication, up from only 50,000 people in 2002. Malaria deaths have been cut in half in countries across Africa in less than 2 years and 46.5 million more children are now going to school. Children are precious and each and every child deserves to have fresh water, food, a warm place to sleep and an education.
My favourite musician of all time co-founded ONE and (RED)which I also support! 🙂
