In 1986, Bono started speaking publically about his concerns with human rights. In the same year, he went on a world tour with his band U2 and spoke about his concerns. In 1999 he went to Africa to help with Humanitarian Aid.
Bono has often used his fame to draw attention to humanitarian causes around the world. In the band’s early days, Bono spoke during concerts against the violence in Northern Ireland. He visited Ethiopia during the famine crisis in the 1980s. U2 drew attention to the atrocities in the Balkans by broadcasting interviews from Sarajevo during the ZooTV concert tour. More recently, Bono has been active in the Jubilee 2000 movement, which hopes to erase the debt of third-world countries.
Since 1985 Bono has shown interest in the struggles of the African people after spending some time in Africa where they worked in an orphanage in Ethiopia. Since then he has helped form organizations such as DATA (debts, AIDS and trade in Africa), and the ONE Campaign. Due to his contributions Bono has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize many times and has been given many other high honors throughout the world.
