A 2010 Tutu Fellow and the CEO of the African Leadership Institute, Jackie Chimhanzi PhD, has been appointed to the Board of the international organisation, the ONE Campaign.  ONE is a global movement, campaigning to end extreme poverty and preventable disease by 2030. ONE’s Board of Directors includes individuals with extensive experience in advocacy and activism, policy, politics and business.

The board includes Aliko Dangote, the President of the Dangote Group; U2's Bono; the former British Prime Minister, David Cameron; African good governance advocate, Mo Ibrahim; Susan Buffett of the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation; Facebook's COO, Sheryl Sandberg; and the former US Secretary of the Treasury, Lawrence Summers. Jackie, a 2010 Tutu Fellow, was appointed to the 20-person board in May 2020.

Tom Hart, the Acting President and CEO of ONE, said he was delighted that Jackie was joining the Board and that he expected that her contribution would be invaluable in the fight to end the pandemic. Jackie is a member of the ONE Africa Policy Advisory Board.  She was appointed to the board along with Professor Alexander Stubb, the Director of the School of Transnational Governance at the European University Institute in Florence. He is the former Prime Minister of Finland.

Co-founded by Bono and other activists, ONE is strictly nonpartisan, is not a grant-making organisation, and does not solicit funding from the public or receive government funds. It is funded almost entirely by foundations, individual philanthropists and corporate partners
