Description

Results is an advocacy nonprofit that believes in mobilizing everyday people (our volunteers) to generate the political will to end extreme poverty in low-and middle-income countries. We focus our work on global health, access to quality education and economic opportunities.

We direct our energy and efforts at government decision makers like party leaders, Members of Parliament and senators because they have the power to improve policies and make the monetary investments needed to end extreme poverty. We also raise awareness by writing letters to the editor (LTEs) and op-eds, using social media, fundraising and more.

Oftentimes the first step is putting these issues on the radar — and keeping the pressure on. It might seem like a small step, but it all adds up into impact.

commitment: 1 year minimum, 1-2 hours per week on average

support structure: Volunteers (virtually) meet in local groups on a monthly basis and rely on their group leader(s) for guidance. Attending other virtual calls and webinars led by Results staff is recommended.

If you’re ready to learn about advocacy, causes and solutions to extreme poverty and committed to taking action every month, join us!

FRANÇAIS

Nous sommes un organisme de plaidoyer qui mobilise les gens du quotidien (nos bĂ©nĂ©voles) pour gĂ©nĂ©rer la volontĂ© politique pour mettre fin Ă  l’extrĂȘme pauvretĂ© dans les pays Ă  faible et moyen revenu. Nous concentrons notre travail sur la santĂ© mondiale, l’accĂšs Ă  une Ă©ducation de qualitĂ© et l’inclusion Ă©conomique.

Nous concentrons notre Ă©nergie et nos efforts Ă  mobiliser les dĂ©cideurs et dĂ©cideuses politiques comme les chef.fe.s de partis, dĂ©putĂ©.es, sĂ©nateurs et sĂ©natrices, car ils et elles dĂ©tiennent le pouvoir d’amĂ©liorer les politiques et de faire les investissements requis pour Ă©radiquer l’extrĂȘme pauvretĂ©. Nous faisons aussi de la sensibilisation en Ă©crivant des lettres ouvertes aux journaux, en utilisant les mĂ©dias sociaux, en collectant des fonds et bien plus.

Souvent, la premiĂšre Ă©tape est d’attirer l’attention sur ces enjeux et de les faire connaĂźtre — et de maintenir la pression. Cela peut sembler ĂȘtre un petit pas, mais les actions s’accumulent et ont ainsi de l’impact.

engagement : 1 an minimum, 1-2 heures par semaine en moyenne

structure de soutien : Les bĂ©nĂ©voles se rĂ©unissent (virtuellement) en groupes locaux tous les mois et comptent sur leur.s leader.s de groupe pour obtenir des conseils. Il est aussi recommandĂ© d’assister Ă  d’autres appels virtuels et webinaires dirigĂ©s par les employĂ©es de RĂ©sultats.

Vous ĂȘtes prĂȘt.e Ă  apprendre ce que signifie faire du plaidoyer, en apprendre plus sur les causes et solutions Ă  l’extrĂȘme pauvretĂ©, puis vous vous engagez Ă  passer Ă  l’action Ă  chaque mois? Joignez-vous Ă  nous!
