ONE is a campaign and advocacy organization backed by more than 2 million people from around the world and every walk of life who are committed to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa...

"Cofounded by Bono, Bobby Shriver and other campaigners, and supported by Bob Geldof and other high profile activists, ONE is nonpartisan and works with activists from the left, right and center to mobilize public opinion in support of effective, proven initiatives that are delivering results: protecting families from preventable diseases like AIDS and malaria, putting kids in school, providing economic opportunity and stabilizing communities. To help ensure the policies we advocate are effective, we seek advice from leading African anti-poverty campaigners and policy experts." [1]

" In 2004, DATA, Bread for the World, the Better Safer World coalition and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundations created ONE: The Campaign to Make Poverty History, which calls for 1% more of the US federal budget to be directed towards effective international assistance, as America's initial fair share of a global effort to achieve the Millennium Goals."

Merged with Debt, AIDS, Trade, Africa in 2007.
