Avaaz: A Voice for the World

Avaaz is a Non-Governmental Organization, which bills itself as a watchdog against various social evils such as corruption, human rights abuses, Global warming, poverty etc, on a global scale. As of today, Avaaz boasts of nearly 45 million members in 194 countries. Started in 2007 by a Canadian named Ricken Patel, he is still the Executive Director of Avaaz. Armed with a degree in economics from Oxford University and a Masters degree in Public Policy from Harvard, he worked for esteemed groups such as the International Crisis Group and Moveon.org, where he learned the ropes of activism on a global scale.
Working for these organizations, especially moveon.org, he learned how to use the internet for activism purposes. In this digital age, the world is more connected than ever and Mr. Patel succeeded in spades. The group operates in all six continents and the website is accessible in 15 different languages. This kind of connectivity between a group’s members is unprecedented. Wherever a problem exists, it is possible to bring it to peoples attention, in a very short time. However, it is not only helping people and communities in a broad sense. Even on the micro level, Avaaz is capable of bringing attention to matters and quickly resolve it.
This power of community is what sets Avaaz apart from other similar organizations. In most organizations who do similar work, there will be a hierarchy. You have the people at the top who are running things by setting agendas. Then they take these to the volunteers and start working on them. With Avaaz, it is just the opposite. Staff members talk to the volunteers and then decide on a course of action. After all, we live in a world where the squeaky wheel gets the grease, and Avaaz has helped thousands of causes squeak a little louder so that it gets noticed and dealt with.

In many regions around the world, women are not able to afford having proper feminine hygiene products to keep them covered when they go out into the world. Due to this, when women are going through their period, they must stay home. This can leave their families without several days worth of money coming in. They also might miss school, setting them behind and struggling to catch up. It also makes it less likely a business owner will hire them as they know the women will be forced to miss work several times a month.  While he is not able to donate tens of millions of dollars to the women in order to improve their overall livelihood, with his current Kickstart project, he is planning on delivering the ability for women to remain going to school and work, no matter what their bodies are doing.

The reusable cloth products are designed to absorb what a woman discharges, but it is washable so they don’t need to worry about going out and purchasing new products every few months or so. While there does come a time where the reusable cloth is no longer able to sustain and absorb everything it is something that will last typically a year or longer. So, a woman with a handful of these items will no longer be forced to miss out on life.
