ONE Fights Poverty + Hunger With Sweet Potatoes
ONE’s current campaign, A Recipe 4 Change, is calling on world leaders to put sweet potatoes on menus to save 25 million children from chronic malnutrition by 2016. What is ONE you ask?
“ONE is a grassroots advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa, by raising public awareness and pressuring political leaders to support smart and effective policies and programs that are saving lives….”
