In October 2012, a dozen ONE Moms visited Ethiopia. During their visit, the moms visited many sites including farms, schools and health clinics sponsored by a number of governmental, international and non profit organizations that are having a transformational impact on the lives of women, their families and their communities.
The group visited some projects sponsored by the American people through USAID including nutrition, enterprise development, and HIV&AIDS support. The ONE Moms group included a brain scientist, model, lawyer, middle school principal, authors, bloggers and a hog farmer. Ten MOMs were from the U.S. and two MUMS from the U.K.
The ONE organization is a non-partisan movement of more than three million people taking action around the world to fight extreme poverty and preventable disease by raising public awareness and demanding solutions from their governments.
