Become a 2019 ONE Champion in Nigeria

ONE in Nigeria is recruiting for its 4th cohort of the ONE Champions Program. This is a voluntary program where ONE will recruit, train, and support 50 emerging leaders between 18-35 years of age who will champion causes ONE supports at the grassroots, state and federal level in Nigeria. ONE advocates and campaigns on education, health, agriculture and transparency as a means to fight poverty with focus on gender and youth.

ONE champions will work closely with the ONE Nigeria Country program, led by the Country Director and will work with the direction and support of the ONE Campaigns team to come up with innovative and exciting ways to engage policymakers to secure policy changes and public investments to address poverty in Nigeria.




This is a fantastic opportunity to impact your community, country and the world working with a highly-visible, mission-driven ONE member in an incredible, supportive environment. Champions will receive training on how to campaign, pressure decision-makers and engage the media. You will have the opportunity to attend ONE events and put your skills into practice in meetings with high-level decision makers.

About ONE

ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organisation of more than 9 million people around the world taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.

We believe the fight against poverty isn’t about charity, but about justice and equality.

Whether lobbying political leaders in world capitals or running cutting-edge grassroots campaigns, ONE pressures governments to do more to fight AIDS and other preventable, treatable diseases in the poorest places on the planet, to empower small-holder farmers, to expand access to energy, and to combat corruption so governments are accountable to their citizens. Cofounded by Bono and other activists, ONE is strictly nonpartisan.




ONE’s 9 million members are critical to this work. They come from every walk of life and from across the political spectrum. They’re artists and activists, faith and business leaders, students and scientists. They take action day in, day out — organising, mobilising, educating, and advocating so that people will have the chance not just to survive, but to thrive.

ONE teams in Washington, D.C., New York, London, Johannesburg, Brussels, Berlin, Paris, Ottawa and Abuja educate and lobby governments to shape policy solutions that save and improve millions of lives — and which every year are under threat from cuts and other priorities.

ONE is not a grant-making organisation and we do not solicit funding from the public or receive government funds. ONE is funded almost entirely by foundations, individual philanthropists and corporations.
