Duncan Goose of One launched his venture a decade ago, saying he simply wanted to raise enough money to help one person after he saw a newspaper photograph of a young girl sitting next to a padlocked water tap in Africa.

An event was held at 10 Downing Street to honour Mr Goose's achievements in raising millions of pounds to finance projects in Africa and other parts of the world.

He recently travelled to Africa to track down the girl in the photograph - 15-year-old Ann Njeri Kibuki.

"Her photograph has been on my desk every day since we started this, so it was incredible to find her - literally a one in a million chance," he said.
