With more than a billion people in the world living in extreme poverty its easy to think that you couldn’t possibly have the means – or the power – to make a difference.
It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from RESULTS is here to show you that it is possible and that everyone can play an important role in the battle to end poverty.
With RESULTS you can unlock millions of aid dollars to save lives and bring opportunities to the world’s poorest people.
Even if you have just a little spare time on your hands RESULTS has something for you.
With support from our staff and other dedicated grassroots volunteers, you’ll be able to get informed and take action with your Member of Parliament, the media and in your local community.
Usually meeting once a month, RESULTS groups around the country educate themselves on poverty issues and take strategic actions designed to influence key decision makers. These actions can include writing to an MP or a newspaper, planning an event in the local community or a meeting with an MP or Senator in their electorate.
You can still be involved if there is no local RESULTS group in your area.
Some issues we regularly address, which are based on the Millennium Development Goals, include: microfinance, education, child survival, global health.
On many of these issues RESULTS works in close partnership with its RESULTS affiliates in five other countries across the world (USA, UK, Canada, Japan and Mexico).
RESULTS International (Australia) is also a partner in ACTION.org, a global partnership of advocacy organisations working to influence policy and mobilise resources to fight diseases of poverty and improve poor people’s access to healthcare.
Our Mission is to generate the public and political will to end poverty.
Our Vision is a world without poverty.
