ONE is a grassroots campaign and advocacy organization backed by more than 2 million people who are committed to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Cofounded by Bono and other campaigners, ONE is nonpartisan and works closely with African policy makers and activists.

ONE is hitting the road with U2 this summer to launch a recruitment drive for new members and to raise awareness of the critical progress being made against extreme poverty and preventable disease in Africa. Thanks to the band’s support, ONE will be present at venues and featured in the show throughout the U2 360° tour, which will be seen by over 3 million people this year.

The G8 countries’ meeting is starting in Italy, and ONE is putting the pressure on them, and especially on the host country, to deliver on their promises to make funds available to fight poverty.

Sign the petition for Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to deliver on his 2005 promises of aid.
