Amazing Africa: How development assistance is helping to end poverty

February 21, 2013

"Lauren Pfeifer wrote up a great article outlining how programs like GAVI and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria have helped make progress on our poverty-fighting plan, the UN Millennium Development Goals, last week. Her article outlined the hard facts – but at the end of the day, we know that seeing is believing. So this week, we looked through ONE’s photo archives and pulled out our favorite photographs of life-saving, life-improving, poverty-fighting development assistance in action, including programs funded by the UK’s DfID, the US’ USAID, the European Union and Canada’s CIDA. The world is truly working together to help end poverty!...UK Aid has supported the government of DRC and aid agencies including Action Against Hunger to help tackle malnutrition from the ground up – by forming their own co-operative farms and self-support groups."
