We are a grassroot of RESULTS UK in Bristol.
More about RESULTS:
A quarter of the world’s population lives in extreme poverty, and tonight 800 million people will go to bed hungry. For some the idea of a world free from hunger and poverty seems an implausible and impossible dream. We disagree.
The world has the resources, skills and know-how to end hunger and extreme poverty. What is missing is the commitment to make this happen. There are many organisations working to fight hunger and poverty around the world. RESULTS' particular focus is unique: RESULTS work at a grassroots, national and international level to create the political will to end hunger and the worst aspects of poverty.
At the heart of RESULTS is a network of volunteers who work together in local groups to become effective advocates for change. Groups meet every month to learn about a development issue from an expert and about what we can do to take action. Issues we regularly address include microfinance, education, child survival and global health. We then support each other to take actions to create the momentum for change, such as meeting with our MP, writing to decision-makers or getting letters published in local newspapers.
Our multifaceted approach has proven to be a powerful advocacy combination yielding tangible and lasting results. As one of our grassroots activists pointed out, "It’s no longer good enough to just shrug your shoulders and say ’What can I do?’ RESULTS answers that question."
The RESULTS network is supported by a small staff who work in coalition with parliamentarians and organisations around the world to advocate on global poverty issues. Will you join us?
Together with our other volunteers across the UK, you could be empowered to make a real difference in the lives of the world’s poorest people.
