BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
Hi everyone! This summer I am fortunate enough to be a political affairs intern at The Borgen Project, a non profit organization that fights to end poverty all over the world. As an intern, I am responsible for contacting members of Congress and fighting for legislation that benefits those abroad in need, such as support for the International Affairs Budget. I work to mobilize other people to contact their members and ask for Congressional support of bills they agree with. It is also my responsibility to raise money for The Borgen Project, considering changing the world does have a cost. With only 3 paid staff members and donated office space, The Borgen Project uses all of its resources to gain access to those with great influence to foreign aid legislation and to improve global poverty conditions. If possible, it would be greatly appreciated by me, The Borgen Project, and those suffering in poverty abroad, if you could sponsor my run and donate to the cause! Thanks for reading everyone!
