“RESULTS remains one of the best-kept secrets in development. Since the 1980s, RESULTS has played a unique role in helping to direct billions of dollars of government funding toward child survival, microfinance, education and health. It has done it with an army of volunteers and almost no fanfare.” – David Bornstein, The New York Times, 2013
RESULTS is a movement of passionate, committed everyday people. Together we use our voices to influence political decisions that will bring an end to poverty.
Volunteers receive training, support, and inspiration to become skilled advocates. In time, volunteers learn to effectively advise policy makers, guiding them towards decisions that improve access to education, health, and economic opportunity for those who need it most.
Volunteer advocates are backed by in-depth research, the legislative expertise of RESULTS staff, and detailed training.
With every hour of our time, we multiply our impact through the power of advocacy — whether it’s helping change policy to support millions of families putting food on the table or helping raise billions of dollars for the world’s most vulnerable children.
RESULTS advocates are not paid lobbyists. They come from every corner of Australia and around the world and prove that every voice has power. And by bringing all of our voices together, we can change the world.
Anyone can join RESULTS and individuals like you are central to our success.
We are also a partner in ACTION, a global health partnership of advocacy organisations working to influence policy and mobilise resources to fight diseases of poverty and improve poor people’s access to healthcare.
RESULTS International (Australia) is a non-partisan and non-profit organisation as well as a full financial member of the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) and is a signatory to their Code of Conduct.
RESULTS International (Australia) – Constitution
We do not support any political party or promote political candidates – we are working to educate and influence parliamentarians and government and this is directed in a non-partisan way to all members of the government, opposition and minor parties and their advisors.
We don’t apply for or receive any funding from the Australian Government to undertake its community education and advocacy. This enables independence and the ability to be fearless and forthright in our advocacy. Instead we rely on, and are grateful for, your individual donations, especially regular monthly commitments and lifetime membership gifts. Every donation is vital so we ask that you consider giving a gift to support the work of RESULTS by donating here or by calling us on 1300 713 037
