The ONE Campaign responds to GSMA announcement on SDGs
Jamie Drummond, Executive Director and Co-Founder of The ONE Campaign, said:
“GSMA’s recognition of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development is a boon to the fight against extreme poverty. Through those handy mobile devices we can accelerate efforts to ensure that once marginalised young people around the world become a movement of empowered local scorekeepers, keeping check that their leaders are meeting these ambitious targets. That’s pretty m-Powerful. Mats Granyrd and the GSMA have engineered sector-wide support – a global industry first for the new Global Goals. We hope that others now quickly follow their lead.”
