Charity can move millions, but advocacy can move billions.
Results International (Australia) is a non-partisan international aid and development organisation. We advocate directly to Australian Parliamentarians with the aim of leveraging millions of dollars in Government funding for the world's poorest communities. We believe that no matter where people are born, everyone should have equal opportunities to fulfil their potential in life.
For 35 years we have recruited, trained and empowered everyday Australians through our grassroots advocacy program. We enable our advocates to use their voice to ensure Australia is being a good global citizen and using its aid budget as effectively as possible.
Our model of advocacy enables us to create systemic and transformational change for the world's poorest and most vulnerable communities. Throughout our history, we have generated significant Government investment in our priority areas: global health, education, nutrition and women and girls.
With head, hands and heart, Results has contributed to some of the biggest wins in the fight to end global poverty. From mobilising billions of dollars to alleviate diseases of poverty such as tuberculosis and polio, to ensuring millions more children have access to basic education - and we're only just getting started.
"Democracies work best when their citizens are actively engaged. Results give every citizen the opportunity to tell their government that they care about Australia being a good international citizen."
