    176 AID AND DEVELOPMENT Over one billion people lifted from extreme poverty since 1990 October 31 2018 | By: KEREZHI SEBANY JOIN Join the fight against extreme poverty EmailJoin We’re closer than ever before to ending extreme poverty. In 1990, 36% of the world’s population was living on less than US$1.90 a day. By 2015, this figure had shrunk to just 10%. That’s over a billion people no longer living in extreme poverty! Despite remarkable progress, the fight is far from over. The World Bank’s latest official poverty estimates show that poverty reduction has slowed down to less than half the rate it was. In 2015, 736 million people worldwide were still living on less than US$1.90 a day. If poverty reduction doesn’t happen faster, we may not end extreme poverty by 2030. In 2015, more than half of those living in extreme poverty were in sub-Saharan Africa. That’s 413 million people, up from an estimated 278 million in 1990. Without urgent action, nearly 9 in 10 people living in extreme poverty are predicted to reside in sub-Saharan Africa by 2030. Poverty is also on the rise in fragile and conflict-affected countries.. The proportion of people living in extreme poverty in these countries has been increasing since 2010. In 2015, nearly a quarter of all people living in extreme poverty were in these countries. Most of these countries are in Africa and face some of the most severe structural barriers to development. How can we step up efforts to end extreme poverty? That was one of the main questions at the World Bank’s launch event to mark the release of the new poverty estimates. Jamie Drummond, ONE’s Co-Founder and Executive Director of Global Strategy, was straightforward: we need to increase investments in people, particularly young women. We’ve come a long way, and we know how far we need to go to win this battle. In order to win, governments need to invest in people to grow economies. This won’t be easy, but it is possible. More importantly, it is necessary to create a world where everyone can thrive. You can join the fight against extreme poverty by becoming a ONE member today!

    Supported living services Find out about our supported living services Breadcrumb Advice and support Housing People take choosing where to live and who to live with for granted – we don’t, we understand that having these choices makes you feel in control of your life. We support people with a learning disability to live how and where they choose in our supported living services. A place of your own We work together with our sister charity, Golden Lane Housing, as well as social and private landlords to find a home that meets your needs. Some of our supported living services are purpose-built or have been adapted and use technology that helps people to live as independently as possible. For many people who want to live independently, getting the right care and support is just as important as finding the right home. We have been supporting people for years, so we know what quality support looks like. We can provide personal support to help you with things like getting dressed. We can also help you around the home, such as cooking a meal. And if you would like support to go out in the community or to do your favourite thing, we can help you to with that too. Support is available from a couple of hours a week to 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Quality and experience Our services meet or exceed the standards set by the Care Quality Commission and the Social Services Inspectorate Wales. We also have our own quality standards, What Matters Most, which help us support people in the best possible way. These standards have been developed to cover the things that people have told us are important to them. We have supported many people to move from residential care or family homes into their own place or a house shared with friends. Read our latest housing report Take a look at our latest report based on research around Specialised Supported Housing (SSH) for people with a learning disability. We've created this report to better understand the scale, nature and cost of SSH, draw on examples of good practice and to provide evidence to inform the debate around funding for supported housing in the future. The report presents findings from research carried out by Housing LIN (Learning and Inclusion Network) into the scope and scale of the SSH sector.

    15k CULTURE Learn more about the awesome female characters in ‘Black Panther’ February 14 2018 | By: SADOF ALEXANDER JOIN Join the fight against extreme poverty EmailJoin In a world where women are not always given the same opportunities as men, a film that shows powerful women breaking down gender barriers deserves celebration. Audiences are gearing up to see the highly-anticipated Marvel film Black Panther, and for all the right reasons. In addition to having a predominantly African-American cast, the film features an ensemble of vital female characters. Fierce warriors, a powerful queen, and a young genius don’t just work beside the hero — they are heroes themselves. The film’s stars are just as excited for the film. Here’s what some of them are saying about the powerful female characters they bring to life: 1. Danai Gurira Embed from Getty Images Danai Gurira — a ONE member and supporter of the #PovertyIsSexist campaign — understands the power of representation in empowering young girls. In Black Panther, Gurira plays Okoye, head of an all-female special forces group, the Dora Milaje. She works closely with the king, T’Challa, to ensure his safety and protect the nation’s citizens. Seeing a woman in such a prominent position will be valuable for young viewers, according to Gurira. “The idea that little girls can look at those who are closest to their leader and see they are women. And see these women walk the streets and be in charge…It’s something so important to preserve;” she said in an interview with Elle. “That little girl needs to be able to grow up and become an Okoye, or a Shuri, or a Nakia.” 2. Lupita Nyong’o Embed from Getty Images Lupita Nyong’o plays Naika, a member of a special team that travels to the outside world to gather information for Black Panther‘s fictional kingdom of Wakanda. Nyong’o told toofab that Black Panther breaks down female stereotypes by showing women “going about our business, supporting each other, having other points of view but still not being against each other.” “The fact that there’s so many of us, we really get a sense of the fabric of Wakanda as a nation. We see women alongside men and we see how much more effective a society can be if they allow women to explore their full potential.” 3. Angela Bassett Embed from Getty Images It takes immense power to be Queen Mother of Wakanda, which is why Angela Bassett fits the role perfectly as Ramonda. She plays a proud mother on screen, and shows her pride in her fellow cast members off-screen. “It’s a lot of strength and balance and beauty and I’m just thrilled by getting to work with Danai and Lupita and actresses and brand new faces across the diaspora; it was beautifully cast,” Bassett told toofab. “It’s going to be quite a sight and I think it’s going to be magnetic.” 4. Letitia Wright Embed from Getty Images Shuri, Princess of Wakanda and inventor extraordinaire, is one of the most intelligent people in the world. As the leader of the Wakandan Design Group, she creates the incredible technology used by her brother, T’Challa. In real life, Africa has been seeing a rise of girls in tech. For example, in Kenya, the introduction of NairoBits has empowered more girls to learn computer skills. The country will also be represented at this year’s Technovation competition, thanks to five incredible girls who invented an app to end FGM. Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri in the movie, hopes Black Panther will inspire even more young women to pursue tech. “She’s (Shuri) so vibrant; a beautiful spirit, but also so focused on what she does,” Wright said in an interview with comicbook.com. “And that’s good for other people to see, especially young people to see, because it’s like, ‘Look, there’s a young black girl who loves technology and she’s from Africa.’ It’s something refreshing.” International Women’s Day is just around the corner, and it looks like audiences will have some new role models to celebrate. Which of these characters inspires you the most? Leave a comment below!

    451 HIV/AIDS 14 facts about the AIDS epidemic you need to know 28 November 2018 3:39PM UTC | By: ONE SIGN THE PLEDGE Sign the pledge: We’ll do whatever it takes to end AIDS EmailAdd your name Thirty years ago, HIV/AIDS swept the globe largely unchecked, and a diagnosis was seen as a death sentence. Two decades later, we’ve made amazing progress – AIDS-related deaths are down by half – but the good news makes the bad news worse. This good news may be hiding a big problem. The incredible progress the world has made against AIDS has created a sense of complacency that is threatening our ability to end AIDS within our lifetime. You might not know it from watching the news or listening to lawmakers, but AIDS is still a crisis. Nearly 37 million people are living with HIV today, and more than 15 million of them still can’t get life-saving treatment. This is something we can change, but it will take leadership. These stats show the true scale of the AIDS epidemic, and why world leaders must take action to make this a disease of the past. Globally Around 37 million people are living with HIV/AIDS. That’s nearly the entire population of Canada. Around 35 million people have died from HIV/AIDS since the start of the epidemic. That’s the same as the entire population of Morocco. Nearly 1 million people died from AIDS-related illnesses in 2017. That’s more than 2,500 people dying from AIDS-related causes every day. AIDS is the number one disease killer of young women globally. Nearly 1,000 young women are infected with HIV every day. That’s 40 women every hour. Only about half of children living with HIV/AIDS are receiving treatment. Last year, 180,000 children were infected with HIV during birth or breastfeeding — the first time that new pediatric infections have not fallen since they peaked in 2002. Sub-Saharan Africa Sub-Saharan Africa accounted for nearly 65% of new infections globally. 1.2 million people were infected with HIV in the region in 2017. Sub-Saharan Africa accounted for over 70% of deaths globally. Over 650,000 people died in the region in 2017. 282,000 young women (age 15-24) were infected with HIV in 2017 – that’s over 750 a day. Young women in sub-Saharan Africa are twice as likely to be infected with HIV than young men. The good news Globally, more than 21 million people were receiving lifesaving treatment at the end of 2017, up from 11 million in 2012. That’s a 91% increase. In sub-Saharan Africa, 14.6 million people were receiving lifesaving treatment at the end of 2017, up from 7.7 million in 2012. That’s a 90% increase. Globally, 1.8 million people became infected with HIV in 2017 – down from 2 million in 2013. That’s a 10% decrease. In the last 15 years, the cost of antiretroviral treatment for one person has dropped from US$10,000 a year to US$75 a year — an all-time low. France will host a Global Fund Replenishment Conference in October 2019 – meetings that aim to raise new funds and mobilize partners. It will provide a great opportunity for governments, businesses, and health organizations to recommit to the fight to end AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria. It must be a turning point, anything less will be an indictment of our global leadership. We know what to do, we know how to do it, and we know if we don’t move faster than the virus, then it will win. AIDS isn’t done. And neither are we. To win the fight against AIDS, we need you. This World AIDS Day, ONE members are turning our outrage into action and putting our leaders on notice – add your voice today!

    48 GIRLS AND WOMEN This South African pilot started a camp to inspire young girls 6 December 2018 4:57PM UTC | By: SADOF ALEXANDER ADD YOUR NAME Poverty is Sexist: Join the movement EmailSign The “Zulu Sierra – Papa Whiskey Whiskey” (ZS-PWW) may look like any other plane but this aircraft is special. It’s carrying bright young minds to an exceptional future. The plane is owned by Refilwe Ledwaba — the first black woman to fly for the South Africa Police Service and the first black woman to be a helicopter pilot in South Africa! Refilwe grew up in Lenyenye, a small township in the Limpopo region of South Africa. Originally, she wanted to become a doctor, but everything changed on a flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town. That fateful flight had a female pilot who inspired her to take to the skies. To achieve her goal, she wrote to over 200 South African companies asking them to help fund her education. The South Africa Police Service responded, offering to pay for her training and help her get a commercial pilot license. image via Girl Fly Programme in Africa Foundation Since then, she’s founded the Girls Fly Programme in Africa Foundation (GFPA) — a non-profit that has set-up a training programme and an annual flying camp for teenage girls — giving a head start to the next generation of women aviation and space leaders in Africa. The camp (run with Women and Aviation) teaches girls from South Africa, Botswana and Cameroon all about aviation. Camp attendees spend their days learning about computer coding, building robots and completing flight simulations. They also get an opportunity to take a flying lesson on board the ZS-PWW, where they learn the basics of flying. image via Girl Fly Programme in Africa Foundation The girls come from different backgrounds, from townships to private schools, but all achieve high scores in math and science at their schools. GFPA gives them the opportunity to meet professionals working in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), and learn about the exciting and hugely varied career opportunities for them in these fields. “I think STEM is very important because, on a personal note, it opened a lot of doors for me,” says Refilwe. “So if you’re not going to prepare women for those jobs in the future, then we’re lost.” Refilwe made history in South Africa. Now, she’s paving the way for a new generation of girls to do the same. Every girl deserves the opportunity to reach the skies. If you want to support girls worldwide, join the Poverty is Sexistmovement!

    GIRLS & WOMEN Local African dolls outselling Barbie in Nigeria Diversity exists in all walks of life, even toys. I don't personally have a big history of playing with dolls, and as a large, bearded male who enjoys violent sports, I might not even be the sort of customer that doll manufacturers have in mind when creating their products. I'm not really offended by that. But a story that didn't sit as well with me comes from Nigeria, where, one day, Taofick Okoya's daughter told him that she wished she was white. The comment didn't sit well with Okoya either, and instead of lamenting the lack of dolls who could make his daughter feel content in her own skin, he got to work. "All the dolls in the house were all white, and I was like, 'Oh, OK, that's a problem,' " Okoya said. "Because when you load a child with all this, it becomes an acceptable form of ... how you should look. And so I thought, I want to use my dolls to teach Nigerian culture, African culture." Suppliers and retailers in Nigeria were initially skeptical about African dolls dressed in local fashion styles. "They said, ‘black dolls don’t sell,’” he told Elle South Africa. “I then embarked on an educational campaign via various media, telling people about the psychological impact dolls have on children, and (the effect) dolls in the likeness of the African child can have on them. It took almost three years.” And Okoya's persistence paid off. The Queens of Africa range of dolls is now stocked around the country, with orders from North America, Europe, and Brazil starting to roll in. Almost 10,000 dolls are being sold per month, each of which is assembled and dressed by hand in Lagos. That rate of sales is outpacing Barbie in Nigeria. The three dolls in the African Queens range are styled after three of Nigeria's main tribal groups, and represent peace, love, and endurance. In a music video created for the dolls, one of the dolls was even holding a #BringBackOurGirls sign! The range of products is expanding, and will eventually include music, books, movies, and accessories. And it's a good thing. Teaching young girls to accept themselves and their own beauty is important around the world, and the social values built into the Queens of Africa range will help to create strong, healthy communities.

    0 CULTURE 6 stunning African Instagram accounts you need to be following August 17 2018 | By: SADOF ALEXANDER JOIN Join the fight against extreme poverty EmailJoin Photography has a new face in the modern world. With over 1 billion monthly users, Instagram continues to change the way people take and share photos. It’s no surprise that novice and professional photographers alike flock to this social media platform. Social media makes our world seem smaller and smaller. On Instagram, users can see images from anywhere. It also empowers people to capture their everyday lives on film, allowing them to challenge stereotypes, tell real stories, and change the way we see the world around us. How can social media change the way the world sees Africa? Here’s 6 Instagram accounts answering that question: 1. Everyday Africa You can find profiles from The Everyday Projects all over Instagram. Each of their accounts exists to challenge stereotypes and show multiple perspectives on different cultures. Their Everyday Africa profile empowers photographers across the continent to share their work – and the stories that come along. Everyday Africa’s popularity has stretched its influence past the social media platform. Multiple magazines have featured their work and stories, and a full-length book has also been published by their founders and photographers. 2. Visiter L’Afrique There are tons of travel Instagrams floating around. Visiter L’Afrique sets itself apart by showing Africa through the eyes of the people who live throughout the continent. The account’s ambassadors show the stunning landscapes, breathtaking cities, and tranquil seasides that are ignored all too often. “I wanted to show Africa as it really is, far from stereotypes,” says Diane Audrey Ngako, founder of Visiter L’Afrique. “It is not to deny its problems, but rather to highlight its strengths and opportunities.” 3. lafrohemian Sarah Waiswa, a Ugandan-born Kenyan photographer, left the corporate world to pursue her passion — and she hasn’t looked back. Her captivating photos of everyday life explore what she calls the “New African Identity.” Waiswa’s work explores social issues throughout the continent in unique and innovative ways. From the persecution of albino people to ballet dancers in Kibera and so much more, her images show dynamic issues that often go unseen. 4. africashowboy Even if you don’t know his name, you’ve probably seen his work. Nana Kofi Acquahworks for Getty Images, The Global Fund, Facebook, Hershey’s, and BBC, to name a few. His talents in journalism and advertising come together with the hope of sparking new conversations about Africa. The topics of his work range greatly, with each one speaking to important issues. His medical portfolios cover diseases like leprosy, ebola, and fistula (you can see some of his photos on fistula in this blog). He’s also dedicated portfolios to showing gender inequality and promoting women’s empowerment. 5. A_taste_of_zimbabwe Ivy Mango knows how to create a feast for the eyes. Growing up in the Mudzi District, she discovered her passion for cooking while exploring her garden and eating family meals cooked by her grandmother. Her childhood grew into a culinary career. Her account features a spread of every Zimbabwean dish imaginable. These irresistibly colorful plates, and the recipes that go along with them, would satisfy any appetite! 6. sam.vox Tanzanian photographer Sam Vox travels the nation documenting important issues. He’s worked with organizations like Water Aid, Everyday Education, and even did some incredible projects for ONE! In both his commissioned and personal work, he uses photography to tell captivating stories. “My Instagram is a channel where I am able to share a small fraction of Tanzania’s heart and her people,” says Vox. “Ultimately my aim is to show the ordinary everyday life in an African country, by sharing stories of people, places and their different cultures and traditions.”

    Por Erica Sanchez y Hlumelo Siphe Williams 2 DE DICIEMBRE DE 2018 21 CIUDADANÍA 9 de nuestras frases favoritas de Trevor Noah en el Festival Global Citizen: Mandela 100 ¡El comediante sudafricano estuvo de regreso en Johannesburgo! Por qué los Global Citizens deberían preocuparse Trevor Noah, nacido en Soweto durante el apartheid, es un excelente portavoz de los Objetivos Mundiales de la ONU, cuya misión es reducir las desigualdades y acabar con la pobreza extrema para siempre. Únete a nuestro movimiento tomando medidas aquí para apoyar los Objetivos Globales. El comediante sudafricano y presentador de The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, ha regresado a su hogar una vez más para presentar el Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, presentado por la Fundación Motsepe. Al subir al escenario para recibir a decenas de miles de Global Citizens en el estadio FNB de Johannesburgo, Noah usó su humor característico para informar sobre los desafíos a los que se ha enfrentado, junto con el resto del país. Nacido de una madre negra y un padre blanco, y criado por su abuela en Soweto en los días oscuros de la era del apartheid, Noah sabe y tiene una experiencia de primera mano de muchas de las desigualdades que aún enfrentamos en la actualidad. Es por eso que él, junto con algunos de los artistas más importantes del mundo de la música, líderes mundiales, activistas y Global Citizens, se han unido para resaltar la importancia de actuar y participar en la eliminación de la desigualdad de todo tipo a escala global. Durante su presentación en el escenario, Noah se refirió a muchos de los problemas que enfrentamos en el continente, así como en todo el mundo. Y para Noah, la única forma en que podemos erradicar la desigualdad social es comenzar a actuar; una responsabilidad de todos, y una de los objetivos de Global Citizen. Estas son algunas de nuestras citas favoritas del discurso de Trevor Noah en el Festival Global Citizen: Mandela 100: 1. Tomar acción. “La acción es la clave y el corazón mismo del movimiento de Global Citizen. Es por eso que todos estamos aquí hoy para celebrar más de 4.2 millones de acciones que ustedes completaron para ganar sus boletos. Pero nuestro trabajo no está hecho. "Ya sea que estés viendo en casa o aquí en este estadio, puedes ser la generación que luche por la libertad y elimine la pobreza". 1.889 personas están hablando de esto Información y privacidad de Twitter Ads 2. Tener objetivos “Hace tres años, la comunidad internacional se unió en torno a los Objetivos Globales de la ONU para el desarrollo sostenible. El objetivo era proporcionar al mundo una hoja de ruta de 17 puntos para acabar con la pobreza extrema. Estos objetivos son el foco del activismo de Global Citizen". 3. Sobre los líderes mundiales “Hoy, exigimos que nuestros líderes mundiales hagan más, y debemos hacerlo ahora. Porque si no actuamos, todo indica que la pobreza extrema no se resolverá en 2030 y, en muchos lugares, empeorará". 4. Sobre el saneamiento “Hoy en día, 1 de cada 3 personas vive sin servicios básicos de saneamiento e inodoros, lo que provoca enfermedades prevenibles y, en ocasiones, incluso la muerte. En el África subsahariana, la situación está empeorando. Así que hacemos un llamado a las corporaciones para que tomen medidas y actúen esta noche para garantizar que se gane la lucha por el agua potable y el saneamiento". Ver imagen en Twitter 118 personas están hablando de esto Información y privacidad de Twitter Ads 5. Sobre la nutrición "Cuando se trata de recursos naturales, África es el lugar más rico de la tierra. África tiene mucha riqueza natural, pero es una locura que con toda esta riqueza, el 40% de todos los niños en todo el continente sufran debido a la falta de acceso a alimentos. Esta noche, llamamos a los líderes africanos a comprometer el 3% de los presupuestos de sus países a la nutrición para 2020". 6. Sobre la educación Ver imagen en Twitter 792 personas están hablando de esto Información y privacidad de Twitter Ads “En el mundo actual, 264 millones de niños se están perdiendo de la escuela. La educación es un derecho humano básico, pero para muchos, sigue siendo un sueño inalcanzable. Necesitamos que más países aumenten sus propios recursos nacionales, y que los líderes del G7 vean esto esta noche, y ustedes saben quiénes son: la canciller Merkel de Alemania, el primer ministro Trudeau de Canadá, la primera ministra May del Reino Unido, el primer ministro Abe de Japón, ¡estamos esperando que respondan a esta llamada urgente!" 7 - Sobre la igualdad de género "Las naciones más pobres del mundo necesitan $ 700 millones al año para llenar la brecha de financiamiento del acceso de las mujeres a la salud. Estamos buscando que países como Bélgica, Francia, Dinamarca y los Países Bajos vuelvan a mostrar su apoyo. Necesitamos acción en varios frentes si queremos lograr un mundo donde las mujeres sean iguales". 8. Sobre su fundación "La fundación es algo que siempre quise comenzar. Me encanta la educación. Amo a todos los maestros que me han llevado a donde estoy hoy. Fue en lo único en lo que mi madre invirtió. Y gracias al generoso apoyo de tantos la Fundación Trevor Noah ya ha hecho grandes avances. Hemos renovado escuelas, les hemos dado acceso a computadoras, a nuevas tecnologías y les hemos dado a los estudiantes una capacitación profesional muy necesaria. Porque para mí la educación no es nada sin una oportunidad para usar el conocimiento. Y mirando hacia adelante, queremos comenzar a ayudar a los maestros a obtener los recursos y el apoyo que necesitan". 9. Sobre todos nosotros, los Global Citizens "¿Podemos tomarnos un momento para apreciar lo que hemos hecho aquí esta noche? Todos los que se encuentran conmigo en el backstage dicen que hacía mucho que no sentíamos una energía como esta. Miren a esta multitud, a estas personas.¡Hemos logrado algo genial! El Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 es presentado por The Motsepe Foundation, con House of Mandela, Johnson & Johnson, Cisco, Nedbank, Vodacom, Coca Cola Africa, Big Concerts, Porteros de BMGF, Eldridge Industries como socios principales y HP y Microsoft como asociados.
