THE AFRICA PROJECT
A Partnership of the Yale Alumni Service Corps and the One Campaign

With Keynote Speaker
Yale Alumnus and ONE Co-Founder
BOBBY SHRIVER ’76, ‘81JD

Learn about the Yale Alumni Service Corps, the ONE Campaign and how we all can be agents for change.


This summer,155 intrepid Yale alumni, family, and friends volunteered with the Yale Alumni Service Corps in Yamoransa, Ghana.  They taught classes, coached sports, mentored female entrepreneurs, inspired young women to go to college, broke ground on an IT center, and treated hundreds of medical patients…all in a village that had little access to running water, sanitation, or electricity.  It was challenging, inspiring, and transformative.  

Throughout this experience, everyone wondered how they could sustain their involvement once they got home.  That is where ONE comes in.  Co-founded by Bono and Yale alumnus Bobby Shriver ’76, ’81JD, ONE is a grassroots advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.  YASC launched a partnership with ONE on the Ghana trip.  Working with ONE, volunteers can continue to make a difference by becoming advocates for programs they know are working, because they have seen them. Ghana is a good focal point, as it is on track to become the first African country to achieve the UN millenium development goal of halving extreme poverty and hunger by 2015.

Join us for an eye-opening evening of conversation and storytelling as volunteers share their experiences in Yamoransa, describe the programs they saw at work on the ground and talk about how all of us can help in the fight against extreme poverty.  We are especially thrilled to have ONE Co-Founder Bobby Shriver join us to talk about his life in public service and his experiences launching ONE.
