THE STORY:

ONE is a hard-headed movement of people around the world fighting the absurdity of extreme poverty. And at the heart of what we do is the fundamental belief that this fight is about justice, not charity. If you believe this too, it isn’t someone else’s problem, it’s your responsibility. But honestly, problem isn’t the right word… it’s an unbelievable opportunity to change your life while you change the world. Extreme poverty can seem like an abstract idea. Some terrible thing that happens to people you’ve never met — halfway around the world. But for 1 billion people, it’s their daily existence. There is no shelter, food pantry, or safety net.

Poverty in any form is a terrible thing. Extreme poverty is an intolerable thing. Action is the answer. That’s why we started ONE. Our three million members around the world take action. They click petitions, make phone calls, write letters, attend rallies – to demand solutions from their governments. Your voice alone may struggle to be heard, but our voices together are hard to ignore. It works. And here’s the proof:

Those living on $2 per day has declined from 80% in 1980 to just above 60% in 2010
1 billion poor people are better off because of investments made between 1970 and 1990
More than 8 million people are on life-saving antiretroviral therapy
New HIV infections among children have dropped by 40%
TB deaths are down from 1.8 million deaths in 2003 to 1.4 million deaths in 2010
50 million more kids are going to school
