Join the Nokia and ONE campaign to fight extreme poverty

Making a difference, every"ONE" can by supporting the ONE campaign in partnership with Nokia to fight against extreme poverty.

The ONE Campaign is an international, non-profit, advocacy and campaigning organisation that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease for more than 20 years, particularly in Africa, by raising public awareness and pressuring political leaders to support effective policies and programs that are saving lives and improving futures. Nokia's part will be on public awareness by featuring evocative images taken by prominent photojournalists, bloggers, amateur photographers and celebrities across the world using Nokia's Lumia 920 smartphone. It will be projected onto the Tate Modern in London the evenings of 11-13 June during the impromptu live performances. Moreover Nokia is encouraging its community to make their voices heard by capturing and sharing images, stories and experiences that support ONE's "Progress via Protest" theme. The images, inspired by protest songs, are available to view and can be shared on Twitter using the official hashtag #nokiaxONECampaign or uploaded to Nokia's official Facebook page (facebook.com/Nokia).

ONE will use the high-quality photography generated by Nokia users to inspire millions of people to support their on-going grassroots advocacy work targeting extreme poverty and preventable diseases around the world. Visitors to one.org/protestsongs will find beautiful photography powered by Nokia alongside a diverse array of artists putting their own spin on classic protest songs. The site will include video performances from everyone from internationally-known artists to street buskers, and gives users the opportunity to add their voice to the fight against extreme poverty.

Take images, share and make a difference!
