Avaaz, “voice,” is an organization that is based in the US. Its name means voice in many European and Asian languages. It was launched in 2007, and it is dedicated to uniting people of the world towards a goal of narrowing and closing the gap that is there between the world we have and the world we want and what Avaaz knows.
It empowers people from all over the world to act on pressing matters in the society like corruption, poverty and climate change. The organization can achieve its mission because of a very active online platform with over 40 million members. Avaaz has been mentioned by “The Guardian” as the world’s largest online activist network. The online platform allows members to contribute their efforts, however small. Avaaz believes that group effort can achieve more than individual effort.
Several organizations are usually organized into different structures. Most of the civic groups are typically issue-specific for that matter, with each structure being mandated a different issue. Avaaz works singly as a united group with no divisions. This way, it can address several public matters and hold many campaigns of different nature and follow their Twitter.
Movements, groups, and organizations usually fall apart after some time because of disagreements which lead to differences and thus lack of understanding and coordination among the members. Avaaz has avoided this by letting go of consensus, since trying to achieve it may be straining. Instead, each member decides whether they want to take part in any campaign or not. This group, therefore, keeps growing instead of fragmenting. The member-funding policy also aids its growth. This organization only accepts donations from its members, but none, from corporate organizations, or governments. This way, the group and the decisions it makes remain independent and is therefore not influenced or swayed. Its priorities also get to stay intact and more information click here.
