BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
Throughout the course of this summer, I am working closely with the nonprofit organization The Borgen Project. The Borgen Project fights extreme poverty by focusing on advocacy and influencing members of Congress to better fund poverty-reduction programs. I know ending global poverty may seem like a really far-reaching and almost impossible goal, but the progress The Borgen Project has been able to accomplish since its humble beginnings in 1999 proves that this is not only a worthy cause, but also one that is achievable.
I am an advocate for The Borgen Project because I want to do my part in the fight against global poverty and hunger. We each have the power within ourselves to change the world – we just need to have the courage to act upon it.
