Global Campaigner

  • VO35798


Description

RESULTS is an international advocacy organisation working to create the public and political will to end hunger and the worst aspects of poverty. Advocates work together in local groups to learn about and share information on development issues and campaigns.

RESULTS gives advocates the tools they need to take effective action to speak out in favour of anti-poverty measures that really work.

As an activist you will take part in our monthly meetings, which take place on the first Tuesday of the month. You will learn about a development issue from an expert and then take an action.

We support each other in small groups to take actions such as meeting with your MP, writing to decision-makers or getting letters published in your local newspaper.
