Social Activism[edit]

In addition to its regular programming, Fashion One has a recent history of promoting social, political, and environmental activism. The channel's approach to activism can be seen in The Girl With No Number, talking about the facts and figures of human trafficking; Light A Million Homes, targeting sustainable solar energy; and Haiyan Relief Campaign, a relief campaign for victims of typhoon Haiyan.

The Girl With No Number[edit]

The Girl With No Number is a short film that was produced in January 2013 to raise awareness about human trafficking.[2][3]

Light A Million Homes[edit]

Light A Million Homes is a project that promotes the use of solar energy, specifically targeting communities in the Philippines.[4]

Haiyan Relief Campaign[edit]

The Haiyan Relief Campaign was started as a relief operation to raise awareness about the aftermath of super typhoon Haiyan aka Yolanda in the Philippines.[5]

Fashion One Foundation[edit]

All of these campaigns have been organized by the Fashion One Foundation, a nonprofit organization, which raises awareness about poverty, human trafficking and other educational and environmental issues. In collaboration with its partners – Fashion Hope, Bigfoot Entertainment, Traffic Jam, and MTV EXIT – the foundation seeks to prevent modern slavery and other violations of human rights. The Fashion One Foundation was founded in 2013.[6]
