The world is changing day in day out. Not only are individual selfish about their own interest, but also ignorant of their present and future. As sorry as this is, sadly it is the state of affairs in most countries all over the globe, but there is hope. One organization that seeks to restore hope to humanity is Avaaz, a US based organization.
Avaaz is a word meaning voice in most Asian, Middle Eastern and European languages. This US-based civil organization was established in January 2007 with the sole democratic mission to close in the paradigm shift between the world in which we are living in and the world we expect to live in the future. This organization equips millions of people from all walks of life with action based information to deal with the pressing national, regional and global issues ranging from corruption, conflicts, animal rights, human rights and poverty.
The Avaaz Foundation does global activism in seventeen languages and has its roots present in six continents with thousands of volunteers.
How does Avaaz work?
Previously, many international activism groups had to build a physical presence in each country that they operate. This was costly and even harder to reach scales to make a difference. However, things have changed thanks to the rising development in technology. Now with the vibrant Avaaz online community, people are able to capture the attention of issues as they arise. From the initial issue of concern solutions and different forms of advocacy can step up to meet the matter brought forth.
The organization is responsible for funding media campaigns and direct actions, lobbying different governments, signing petitions and organizing protest and events to see to it that the various views and opinions of its members are addressed effectively. Founded on a strong set of human values Avaaz is our sure passage to the world we all desire to live in the future.
