Remember signing our open letter to leaders, asking them to take urgent action for 130 million girls who are not getting an education? More than 360,000 others all around the world joined you – that’s an incredible response.
On International Women’s Day, we delivered your letter. And it was BIG.
Watch this video to see what happened.
ONE members walked into decision makers’ offices in 335 locations across 12 countries – from Australia to Italy, Nigeria to Canada, the UK to Belgium. We asked leaders to support the funding and policies needed to help make sure every single girl gets the chance to reach her full potential.
They heard you. Loud and clear.
Leaders didn’t just get your message, they echoed and applauded it. Our letter was mentioned in speeches and statements at the European and UK Parliaments, and the United Nations. In the US, the Senate introduced legislation that will work to get millions more children in the poorest countries into school.
We reached decision makers everywhere, and we couldn’t have done it without your support. Now we need to see action. At every opportunity, we’ll be pressuring leaders to take the steps that will put millions more girls into school. We hope you’ll stick with us – we’re going to need your help.
Watch the video of how we delivered your letter, and please share it if you’re proud of what we’ve achieved together.
Thank you for all you do,
The ONE Team
P.S. Want to do more? We’re counting each of the 130 million girls who are not in school – one by one, out loud – so our leaders can’t ignore them. Join the count and add your photo or video here.
