Bob Geldof: G8 leaders still capable of ending poverty


Join the fight against Extreme Poverty

This week Bob Geldof returned to Ethiopia to highlight various issues in the country including food security, in the run up to the G8 Summit due to take place at Camp David this weekend.

Bob Geldof has called on the leaders of the G8 to make good on their promises to tackle extreme poverty and hunger.

Over 290,000 ONE members have signed our Thrive petition calling on the G8 to support a global plan to ensure 50 million people escape poverty through agriculture and 15 million children no longer endure chronic malnutrition. Plus, this week thousands of ONE members have been sending messages to be written on the road leading to the summit by the ONE street tweet robot.
