BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT

Jennifer Watkins

THE STORY:

In August 2014 I began an internship with the Borgen Project, a non profit organization that fights global poverty through legislative action. The Borgen Project believes that leaders of the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty. They’re the innovative, national campaign that is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy.

The Per-Dollar Impact of Innovative Advocacy 
$5,000: Amount an aid agency needs to build one freshwater well that provides 250 people with clean drinking water.

$2,000: Amount we need to meet directly with 70 congressional offices and build support for a bill that will provide 100 million people with access to clean drinking water (Water for the World Act).

Advocacy in a Nut Shell: With the amount an aid agency needs to assist hundreds of people, The Borgen Project is able to shape policy that helps millions of people.
