ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of over 8M people taking action to end extreme poverty & preventable disease, particularly in Africa
None of us are equal untill all of us are equal. Nowhere on earth do women have as many opportunities as men. Nowhere. But for girls and women in the poorest countries, that inequality is amplified.We won’t end extreme poverty until we break down the barriers holding girls and women back. Sexism is global – the fight against it should be too. Join the movement that’s already 9 million strong.
The 2018 Poverty Is Sexist letter launches on March 8, 2018. Please do not share before 10:00 AM EST.
International Women's Day
June 8 and 9, 2018
Educate a girl in one of the world’s poorest countries, and it won’t just change her world. It could change yours too. 130 million girls are not in school right now. That’s 130 million potential engineers, entrepreneurs and political leaders the world is missing out on. Education is one of the most powerful weapons in the fight against extreme poverty - so it’s an outrage that so many girls are still denied the chance to learn.
International Day of the Girl
130 million girls didn’t go to school today. Not because they didn’t want to, but because they weren’t given the chance.The result is that these 130 million girls don’t have a fair chance to live a decent and productive life, and the entire world misses out by not benefitting from their potential. Will you join the count for girls' education today? Go to one.org/girlscount to take action.
