They are known for fighting issues such as poverty, climate change, and animal and human rights. Avaaz operates in 16 different languages within 6 out of the 7 continents.
Avaaz finds that the best way to handle their organization is through one global team. Their way of operation has led the organization to be flexible, focused, nimble, and scaled. Avaaz focuses on issues and matters that are important to the members of the organization. Each week, a poll is held to decide which issues are going to be tackled. This method allows Avaaz to work as a democracy. When an issue is chosen by members, the staff sends important updates that highlight the issue that was chosen in order to start taking action. This organization has found that it is best to tackle issues at their peak. By doing this, they are assured that their action really matters.
