Who We Are

College students are a powerful political force. So in 2007, ONE launched the ONE Campus Challenge to propel this group into action and mobilize college students in the fight against extreme poverty.

Through action-oriented challenges, students, faculty, and alumni join together to take meaningful advocacy actions that urge political leaders to support programs that are saving lives and creating sustainable futures in the developing world every day.

ONE Campus strives to combine the crucial elements of advocacy campaigns with the energy and activism unique to the college experience. Students join (or start!) their school’s ONE chapter. Through their ONE Chapter, students rally with their peers to participate in our creative advocacy challenges, and earn points for every advocacy action they complete, culminating in a prize for the top point-earning schools at the end of each challenge.
