WHY THESE NINE CAUSES?

The Onefluence™ Social Impact Causes are nine problems with a powerful effect on people’s well-being. These nine issues align with certain United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (a.k.a. UN “Global Goals”) that world governments, citizens and companies are tackling between 2015 and 2030. Whatever your personal passion, each of the nine Onefluence™ Social Impact Causes are urgent issues that can create a ripple effect on the other eight causes. For the first time in history, we’re on the brink of real solutions, or even eradication, for these nine problems…but only if the emerging generation takes up the fight.

We’re inspired by Eva, a determined 15 year old who rallied the world and won her village clean water, so that she and others could have a chance to stay in school. Eva even wrote U.S. President Barack Obama, and he brought her plea to the United Nations.
