Bono’s ONE Campaign doesn’t just want to feed the hungry and treat disease — this celebrity charity seeks to end extreme poverty and prevent diseases by advocating and lobbying for the world’s most underserved communities. Their work has been monumental thus far, securing more than $37.5 billion in funding for health initiatives in the fight against AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.
ONE is a global movement campaigning to end extreme poverty and preventable disease so that everyone, everywhere can lead a life of dignity and opportunity. As part of his work with ONE, Bono has lobbied heads of state and government, and members of legislatures all around the world. This lobbying combined with the work of ONE’s grassroots membership has helped to ensure the passage and funding of government policies and programs that have helped to save tens of millions of lives over the past 10 years.
Bono: “Ending poverty is the ONE thing we can all agree on.”
