We are a grassroots advocacy organization that believes in mobilizing everyday people to use their voices to generate the political will to end extreme poverty. We combine the voices of our volunteers with strategic areas of focus to leverage resources for programs and improved policies that give people living in poverty the health, education and opportunity they need to thrive. Whether it’s writing letters to the editor (LTEs), using social media or engaging with parliamentarians, our passionate volunteers positively impact people living in low-and middle income countries.  
 
If you’re ready to learn about advocacy and committed to taking action every month, join us!
