BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT

Lola Arowolo

THE STORY:

 

Borgen Project History: It all began with one person, a laptop and a belief that the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty. 
 
In 1999, while working as a young volunteer in refugee camps during the Kosovo War and genocide, Clint Borgen saw the need for an organization that could bring U.S. political attention to severe poverty. In 2003, after graduating from Washington State University, Borgen began developing the organization. In need of startup funding, the former United Nations intern took a job living on a fishing vessel in Dutch Harbor, Alaska. From this humble beginning, in one of the most remote locations on earth, The Borgen Project was developed and launched by one person with a laptop and a budget that came from his Alaska paychecks. Today, The Borgen Project is headquartered in Seattle and one man's project has turned into a national, web-based campaign aimed at making leaders of the most powerful nation on earth do right for the world's poor.
 
Borgen Project Persona: Forget every notion you have of a poverty-reduction organization. We're wonderfully different. Behind The Borgen Project is a core belief that the same calculated and relentless tenacity used in the corporate world should be used to improve the plight of the world's poor. The gloves are off. We think big and we go big. Poverty reduction has a dire need for an unrestricted catalyst and The Borgen Project was designed to fulfill that need.
