A Voice for the World

Avaaz is a progressive, non-profit organization focused on steering the world in the right direction and in the best interests of all who inhabit it. Through the platform of online communication and interaction, over 44 million members in 194 countries are able to connect in a concerted effort to address issues such as climate change, human rights, animal rights, corruption, poverty, and conflict.
Avaaz informs,excites, and encourages individuals to become a part of something larger than him/herself. As a whole, the joined voices of each individual become stronger, reaching the ears of decision makers throughout the world. Members are enlightened on issues which pertain to not only themselves, but that which pertain to those in need and perhaps aren’t afforded a voice which can be heard. Through this knowledge and understanding of today’s current events, members are given the ability to start a petition, donate, or tell their story in an effort to influence and encourage others as well as help those in need.
Since its origination in 2007, Azaaz has taken action by successfully aiding and supporting many humanitarian endeavors. The organization played an instrumental role in providing relief and aid during the civil uprising preceding the Syrian Civil War; helped to create a no-fly zone over Libya; and provided a voice for all during the 2009 Iranian presidential election protests. These are but a few of the accounts which serve as evidence of the collective force Azaaz has created and continues to provide.
With Avaaz, there are no boundaries or limitations. Through servant leadership, the strength of the organization lies with its members. Once connected, the concern and voice of one can be heard by all. Through this design, Avaaz is taking action and creating change throughout the world.
