The ONE Campus Challenge is a college competition designed to mobilize students, faculty and alumni in the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease.
College students are a unique and powerful constituency. Collectively, students and young people have defined social movements, decided elections, and changed the course of history. When we rally our voices as activists and advocates for the issues we care most passionately about, our elected leaders listen.
ONE Campus creates change by mobilizing college students across the country to learn about extreme global poverty and the challenges it creates; campaigning on campus about the opportunity to eradicate extreme poverty; and advocating for smart, lifesaving investments and US development policies.
It’s not easy work, but the numbers don’t lie. Since 1990, the number of people living in extreme poverty has been cut by 60%. As we continue and improve our work and make our voices heard, we can see an end to extreme poverty in our lifetimes.
