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 campaigns, 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 Campus chapter, students rally with their peers to participate in our creative advocacy campaigns and report each advocacy action they complete.

ONE is an international campaigning and advocacy organization made up of more than 8 million members taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Cofounded by Bono, we raise public awareness and work with political leaders to combat AIDS and preventable diseases, increase investments in agriculture and nutrition, and demand greater transparency so governments are accountable to their citizens. ONE does not raise money itself to build schools, hospitals and the like, but does its work by advocacy and campaigning so that government funds continue to flow to programs that make a difference in people’s lives. ONE works closely with African activists and policymakers as they fight corruption, promote poverty-fighting priorities, monitor the use of aid, and help build civil society and economic development. ONE’s work is strictly politically non-partisan.
