THE STORY:

The Borgen Project believes that leaders of the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty. The innovative, national campaign is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy.

History

In 1999, while working as a young volunteer in refugee camps during the Kosovo War and genocide, Clint Borgen recognized the need for an organization that could focus U.S. political attention on extreme poverty. In 2003, after graduating from Washington State University and interning at the United Nations, Borgen began developing the organization.

In need of startup funding, Borgen took a job living on a fishing vessel docked in Dutch Harbor, Alaska (the same location as “The Deadliest Catch”. From humble beginnings in one of the most remote regions of the world, The Borgen Project was born. One man with a laptop and a budget that came from his Alaska paychecks has evolved into a national campaign with volunteers operating in 220 U.S. cities. In 2014, The Borgen Project team met with 93 percent of the U.S. Senate making it one of the most influential organizations advocating for the world's poor.
