Serah Makka-Ugbabe promoted to Executive Director at ONE


Serah Makka-Ugbabe, a 2018 Tutu Fellow, has been promoted to ONE’s Executive Director for Engagement and Mobilisation. In this role, she will lead ONE’s work on global campaigning and digital strategy, as well as the coordination, growth, and engagement of ONE’s diverse and global supporter base. She was promoted to this post in March 2021.

ONE is a global nonprofit campaigning to end extreme poverty and preventable disease by 2030, so that everyone, everywhere can lead a life of dignity and opportunity. ONE lobbys political leaders in world capitals and runs grassroots campaigns to pressure governments to do more to fight extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa, and empowers citizens to hold their governments to account.

Prior to this latest role at ONE, Serah was ONE’s Nigeria Country Director, where she led the team to achieve success in the flagship #MakeNaijaStronger campaign, resulting in an annual federal fund for basic healthcare provision.

Before joining ONE, Serah worked in Afghanistan, the United States, and Nigeria in the education sector, as a strategy and evaluation consultant, and advised the Nigerian government. Her involvement in people-powered campaigns has included the #OccupyNigeria movement, #BringBackOurGirls, and the #EndSars movement. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of North Florida and a master’s degree in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School.
