About

For the first time in history we have all of the resources needed to end extreme poverty around the globe. RESULTS is a grassroots advocacy group committed to creating the political will to end hunger and the worst aspects of poverty. We're looking to expand our reach and impact by starting a group in Burlington.

The past 25 years have seen tremendous improvements in global poverty. Preventable child deaths have been cut by half, millions more girls & boys in low-income countries are going to school, and we are on the path to ending AIDS. But there is still more work to do! RESULTS has played an important role in these successes through our advocacy.

Come advocate with RESULTS Burlington to continue building the foundations of independence, peace, and opportunity in poor nations. By supporting these nations to provide education, health, and economic opportunity to all, each child can reach their full potential. This is not only the right thing to do--it also benefits the US, making us safer and providing us with solid trade partners.

Don’t know how to advocate? We’ll teach you. RESULTS works to empower everyday people to advocate for solutions to global poverty. We train and support our volunteers to meet with their members of Congress, engage with the media, and communicate about global poverty and hunger issues in their communities. We’ve done amazing work in over 100 communities throughout the US. You can be a part of it.
