Great news! Today, 164 UK MPs supported the International Development Bill at its second reading in Parliament. There is more to do, but this is as close as we’ve ever been to legislating on our generation-old commitment of investing just 0.7% of our national income in aid.

This past July I spent my summer holiday in South Africa. Three things stood out: the overwhelming sense of community, people's determination; and their sustainable living. One student I met, Nthateng, shared a poem she had written. It articulates everything ONE stands for.

I recently met with Babatunde Osotimehin, Executive Director of the United Nations Population Fund. The session raised some interesting questions about youth activism and the role of advocacy organisations such as ONE. So what did Osotimehin have to say about young people?
The campaign for "0.7" (calling on governments to invest just 0.7% of their country's income in development aid) feels like part of my DNA. It’s been going on longer than I’ve been alive. But with a little Spice Girls inspiration, we might be able to finish the job on 12th September. Well, almost.

Whether it's being yourself, taking risks or spending time with loved ones, we all have ideas about what freedom means to us. This video above was created by asking Instagram users what #FreedomIs to them. Join the conversation and let us know why you support everyone’s right to freedom.
I hate aid. I hate what it means. I hate that it exists today. So I’m fighting to make sure it no longer exists. Hardly something you’d expect to hear from someone volunteering for an international NGO, but it is true, I hate it.
