Avaaz is currently one of the most successful civic organizations in the world. The institution has members from all over the globe. Avaaz was established with the main aim of addressing some of the challenges in the modern world such as human rights, animal rights, corruption, climate change and conflicts. Just recently, the institution was named as the largest and also most influential activist network that operates online. Judging by the number of individuals who have joined the institution, it is evident that Avaaz is focusing on making the whole world a better place for everyone in the future.
The name of the organization, Avaaz is a Persian term that means song or voice. The founders of the institution settled on this name because it is familiar with many European and Indonesian terms that mean voice.
Avaaz, just like any other nonprofit making organization has several missions. The firm wants to make the world a better place for humans. Its founders and members from all over the globe were brought together because they had similar objectives. The members of the institution donate the money needed to carry out all the company operations. The firm has been calling for actions that will reduce conflicts among communities, supporting the international refugees and fighting governments that have proven to be corrupt. The organization has also challenged some of the giant companies in the world that do not comply with the required guidelines.
Although the institution was established recently, it has already made a significant change in the society. This change has been possible because of several reasons. First of all, Avaaz knows the importance of the internet. This is why it has chosen to carry out all its operations online. The petitions from the civil organization are done digitally, and they have all been very successful.
