The One By One Foundation
The One By One Foundation believes that the best way to help many, is to help a few. After living in Arusha, Tanzania in 2009 Lucy Bradlow, recognised that the bigger a charity got, the less effective it became. After returning to Australia, Lucy got together with a few like-minded friends in Melbourne to set up a fundraising organisation for the Ujamaa Children’s Home that would ensure that all the money raised goes straight to the Home.
The One by One Foundation is run on an entirely voluntary basis. All fundraising is conducted by a group of dedicated volunteers in Melbourne and all supporters of One by One can be assured that all money raised goes directly and only to the Ujamaa Children’s Home.
The One by One’s main beneficiary is the Ujamaa Children’s Home, an orphanage for up to 25 Tanzanian children founded by Lucy and Carley Andrews, another Australian living in Tanzania. The home differentiates itself for the level of care and support it provides to the children, aiming not only for survival but for the best possible future for the children.
