BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
The Borgen Project fights for the underdog: the world's poorest. It is a non-profit that advocates for the world’s poor and is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy. With over 200 volunteers throughout the United States, we operate through four major strategies: building awareness of global issues, educating citizens on basic advocacy, mobilizing people across the U.S. to share their voice in Congress, and advocating to make poverty a political priority.
Volunteers like myself work with our Congressional leaders to help generate change and secure support for crucial poverty-reducing legislation. I chose to be involved with The Borgen Project because they are committed to their mission and values the participation of citizens, like me. It is their passion and determination for global change that distinguishes The Borgen Project from many others.
Your gift would not only address the critical global issue of poverty, but also allow for me, and others like me, to develop skills and experience related to making a positive and lasting change in the world.
