Jamie Drummond is an advocacy entrepreneur who cofounded ONE with Bono and other activists. ONE is a global pressure group with more than 9 million members around the world, which campaigns against extreme poverty and for the transformation of developing economies and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
Right now ONE is especially campaigning for: investments into education, especially for girls in Africa; gender equality through enhanced education and health services for the most marginalised girls and women; transparency in the extractives and financial sectors. ONE thinks that transparency is key because it helps citizens follow the money from resources to results.
Back in the day Jamie was the Global Strategist for Drop the Debt (which helped cancel $110b of mainly African debt) and cofounder of DATA.org (which helped double smart aid, especially for the health sector and the fight against AIDS, and boost trade deals for Africa). We have a historic opportunity to be the great generation Mandela asked us to be – the great generation that could end the injustice of extreme poverty – but only if we act together, as ONE.
