BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
With all the poverty and injustice in the world, I knew I wanted to make a difference, I just didn’t know how. I came across the Borgen Project while looking for summer internships and I was drawn to their mission: to be an ally for the world’s poor. Then I realized the Borgen Project is where I will be able to make the difference that I have desired for quite some time. After interning for the Borgen Project for just a couple of weeks, I am able to give those in poverty a voice and make our leaders and the American people notice their situation just by talking with my state leaders and friends and family to spread the word. The money would go to individuals and families so they can not only get food and basic resources but they can also get some education on what to do in the future so they can have money, food, etc.
