The world is always in need of help. It is up to people to stand up for their fellow human beings and find ways to help each other. The only issue is finding venues that facilitate the help people want to provide. Avaaz wanted to fill that need for a facilitator. This US civic organization started to lend a helping hand back in 2007. The organization wanted to help promote global activism regarding several topics people care about the most, such as climate change and human rights.
The organization also tackles other issues making people’s lives harder, such as political corruption, poverty, and conflicts amongst society. The idea is to help people who want to bring change connect in a more effective way using the Avaaz platform. Activists around the world have been able to connect and fight for the same causes together using Avaaz, which has helped spread power more efficiently than ever before.
Those who wonder why the organization decided to use Avaaz as its name only need to look up what the word means in the ancient Sanskrit language. The word actually meant “voice,” which makes perfect sense because it is an organization aiming to help the voice of the masses shout out in unison. Some of the people in power may not love what this organization is doing because unified masses are lot more powerful than divided masses.
The abused have a lot more in common with each other than some may imagine. There is no telling how far this organization can go, but it hopes to continue the good fight together and globally. Part of what makes this platform so successful is its simplicity and accessibility. They can be easily found online. The Internet is part of the reason many people around the world are fighting for the oppressed in a more effective way, so hopefully, change continues to make things better for people.
