We can beat:
ONE billion people live on less
than ONE dollar a day.
ONE by ONE, we can help them
BELIEVE that in the best American tradition
of helping others help themselves, now is the time to join with other countries
in a historic pact for compassion and justice to help the poorest people of the
world overcome AIDS and extreme poverty. WE
RECOGNIZE that a pact including such
measures as fair trade, debt relief, fighting corruption and directing
additional resources for basic needs – education, health, clean water, food,
and care for orphans – would transform the futures and hopes of an entire
generation in the poorest countries, at a cost equal to just one percent more of
the US budget. WE
- one person, one voice, one vote at a time - to make a better, safer world for
ONE participants include
celebrities such as Bono, lead singer of U2 and DATA
co-founder; Dikembe Mutombo, NBA All-Star and advocate for Africa; Michael W.
Smith Grammy Award winning Musician; Agnes Nyamayarwo, Ugandan Nurse and Global
AIDS activist, and representatives of national advocacy organizations such as
Bread for the World, World Vision, Global Health Council, DATA and many others.
