Our Mission and Values

ONE is grounded in a mission, vision and set of values that provide a foundation for our work and activities. At ONE, we look for talented individuals who are passionate about working to end extreme poverty and preventable disease and who will strive to embody our values.


ONE is a global movement campaigning to end extreme poverty and preventable disease by 2030 so that everyone, everywhere can lead a life of dignity and opportunity.


Our vision is a world without extreme poverty and preventable disease, where people can fulfill their full potential and actively participate in the decision-making that affects them. This is the world we want, and we fight for it alongside everyone who feels the same. It is our job to enable the power of the people to influence the people in power. We won’t stop until we’re done, because none of us are equal until all of us are equal.


We are fierce but fair
We push world leaders hard to deliver real progress towards ending extreme poverty, and support and champion those who act.

We have big ideas for a better world
We are creative problem-solvers, campaigners, advocates and conveners who find new ways to better our world.

We take our work seriously and get that it is not about us
We have an urgent mission, but also think it’s ok to have fun.

We take smart risks, own our decisions and learn from our mistakes
We try new ways of doing things and are proud to share what we’ve learned from our successes and failures.

We are ONE team
We have one mission and work together to achieve it.
