BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT

William Simonson

THE STORY:

The Borgen Project 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.

As a former Peace Corps volunteer in Armenia, I saw first-hand the positive effects U.S. aid can have to empower other nations. For just 5,000 dollars of USAID funding, I was able to build a set of indoor toilets and sinks so that the school children in my village could wash their hands with hot water for the first time. Imagine your child going to the bathroom outside, over a foot hole, in the freezing weather, and with no water to wash their hands?

I ask that you consider making a contribution so that we can build and maintain our advocacy efforts.

Without support from people like you, I would not have the opportunity to be involved in such an impactful organization and I thank you in advance for your consideration and support. Every gift helps!

Thank you,

Bill Simonson Regional Director of Lancaster County for the Borgen Project
