Alexis Bledel & America Ferrara: ONE's Women & Girls Initiative

Alexis Bledel and America Ferrara travel to Honduras last month as part of ONE’s Women & Girls Initiative, to see how women are working to lift their families out of extreme poverty and what role US development programs have to play.

Alexis, 31, recently spoke about the initiative. She said, “Women and girls are the best investment the world can make in the fight against extreme poverty because, when you invest in a girl or a woman, that investment helps not only the individual, but it benefits her family and community as well. I wish everyone could see what we saw and the difference these women are making in their communities.”

ONE is hosting a chat with America and Alexis at 12 PM EST today where they will answer questions about the trip, share photos and videos, and talk about how everyone can get involved. People can join the conversation by tuning in to @ONEcampaign and following hashtag #ONEchat on Twitter.

ONE is a global advocacy and campaigning organization backed by more than 3 million people from around the world dedicated to fighting extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.

Check out the short film below of Alexis and America‘s trip to Honduras.

    Alexis being 31 could easily passed up at 21 – what an ageles face!

  • baise

    Love pouring much on Alexis; not so much on America LOL

  • jemm

    Hey if Alexis is already 31, how old is America, she looks older btw…

  • Bonnie

    It’s so hard to be a woman those days, especially in poor countries! I’m so proud of them!

  • Claire

    Her last name is FERRERA, not Ferrara

  • somali girl

    Which part of Africa? They look west, central southern Africans. Anyways women who seem to worry about other women come across as sexist, feminists and lesbians. What about boys?

  • Fish

    Whoa, I can’t believe Alexis is 31. Looks 10 years younger, at least.

  • krell

    Honduras is not in Africa but actually located in Central America.

  • booster

    Alexis is getting more beautiful with age – she photographs well even in her most casual outfits – lucky 3x

  • annais

    From an Obama campaigner to a poverty humanitarian; how could you not love or even just adored Alexis Bledel?

  • jaemack

    She’s such sweetheart. Good job Alexis …keep on being so awesomely cool

  • girls_got_ gold

    Proud to be a fan since SOTP days! You go girls, love you and your unselfish works. By the way, you both look beautiful and so happy.

  • cappy

    I just checked the video and its really touchy plus Alexis & America doing their Spanish tongue savvy; super nice.

  • caselle

    I hope/wish that Alexis next target is to be UNICEF Ambassador or an UNHCR Envoy just like Angelina Jolie ; I know that Alexis could also do it.

  • drewlard

    I already liked Alexis Bledel, now I like her even much, much more… great job.

  • marcier

    It seems like that she could *eternally* look like a teenager – how lucky can that be…

  • lianas

    Both look & act beautiful! They both got a good head on their shoulders.

  • @jared

  • gervie

    Loved America ever since “Real Women Have Curves”. Great actress.

  • gervie

    And. did America gain weight or she’s already preggy?! She obviously gained weight, just looked at her tummy in the vid.

  • monreal

    Well done Alexis, to be an example for being humanitarian at these trying times. I like what you do so keep it up.

  • chauncey

    I can’t believe that Alexis is already 31 yrs old. She doesn’t look a day over 21 in those pictures & videos – what is she taking?! LOL

  • missifit

    I grew up watching Gilmore Girls and wishing that I would looked just like her! She seems to never age and is still such a uniquely ethereal beauty.

  • rafferty

    Alexis hit the grand price of genetic lottery for life!!!

    Flawless beauties inside and out – gotta love their work!

  • jenross

    Alexis really cares about important & sensible issues. Go Alexis, you rock!

  • myrtle

    Thank you Jared for this post!

    Love these two! Making a difference for the global community! Hugely inspiring :)

  • ionne

    This is very awesome, I’m very happy that they’re bringing awareness to the situation. Somewhat depressing yet inspiring.

  • sangfroid

    Love it when HW celebs do some charities or humanitarian work. So good, you go, girls, keep it up!

  • myolie

    I watched Ugly Betty on DVD some days ago and those bangs and braces are still on my head. I so miss having Ugly Betty on my TV screen.

  • devaney

    …bringing light to those who are suffering… a very good mantra.

  • ionne

    So refreshing to hear & see some celebrities with a sense of compassion & reality!

  • curly-wurly

    Alexis never seems to age. As her 16 year old self on Gilmore Girls to her 31 year old self now, she has only aged a teeny-weeny bit. Seriously, give me her face asap!

  • nushooz

    Agree much. Hard to believe that Alexis is already 31 yrs. old… like what the hell she looks like she’s still in her 20′s?!

  • jaceck

    High respect for these women, such an inspiration & more power to both of you on your all endeavors….

  • samlin

    Beauty, intelligence and *heart*. Alexis has got it all!

  • bobrick

    Alexis Bledel is a wonderful human being. I love an actress who even/really cares about the world outside HW.

  • darphine

    Loved Rory Glmore & Ugly Betty (lol). Great to see them raising awareness of the suffering and injustice women from across the globe face on a daily basis!
