Avaaz: The voice to the Voiceless

The world in the twenty first century is changing quite fast, with technology taking center stage in nearly everything we do; people and the society are becoming more ignorant of pertinent matters. However, there is still hope at the end of the tunnel thanks to Avaaz.

Avaaz is a US civil based activism organization with a sole purpose and goal of making the world a better place for our future generation. This organization was founded in January 2007 and its membership stretches more than forty million people and organization globally.

In making the world a better place, Avaaz meaning “Voice” seeks to address key issues such as human rights and animal rights, poverty, climate change and conflicts, by first championing for petitions and campaigns throughout the world. Avaaz has embraced technology and is using it for the betterment of its course. As opposed to the traditional tiresome and expensive activism whereby an organization was required to have multiple branches in countries and cities to successfully run its operations, Avaaz is doing it all online.

The second means in which the organization is voicing out to the voiceless is helping create the conversation. Through the Avaaz online portal citizens from all over the world can easily and comfortably join in the online conversations air out their issues regardless of their dialect. The online platform supports at least 17 languages and is available in six continents.

Thanks to Avaaz the gap between the societies we have now and that of the future is rapidly closing down. This organization influence however does not end online, they too help in organizing offline protest and activism and better still fund their members through it all. Join the ever-growing Avaaz community today by either joining the online movement or donating and be part of influencing for a better tomorrow.
