The Voice of 190,000
Bringing reliable energy access to 50 million people sub-Saharan Africans starts a signature and a bill. The ONE campaign teamed up with Maroon 5 in order to create an outreach platform that raised awareness among concert goers and their government representatives. A series of letters and cards were created to urge sponsorship of the Electrify Africa Act.
ONE worked with more than 20 partners—including NGOs, faith groups
and businesses—to reach citizens in South Africa, Malawi and Zambia. Responses were collected via email, SMS, radio interviews, social media and old-fashioned meetings at markets and bus stops to this question:
“Tell us one thing the government can do to improve your future?” The chart above was designed as part of the 16-page You Choose report that delivered the results of over 190,000 responses. The number one item that solicited 1/4 of all answers was "better job opportunities".
Each year ONE publishes a report of extensive data in efforts to hold wealthy countries accountable to their commitments to the poorest of countries.
The 2012 report was specific to the EU's commitment to Africa. See who held strong, who fell short and what this means as we approach 2015.
