BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
HERE'S THE DEAL ON THE BORGEN PROJECT
We fight global poverty. As an influential ally for the world's poor, our purpose is to advocate, educate, mobilize, and build awareness in hopes to make global poverty and world hunger a focus of U.S. foreign policy. Visit borgenproject.org to learn more.
HERE ARE SOME STATISTICS TO PONDER
1 billion children are deprived of one or more services essential to survival and development.
Impoverished, hopeless people are often easy prey for terrorist organizations, drug cartels and other groups that pose a threat to U.S. national security. Poverty does not turn people into terrorists, but it does create conditions of instability that allow terrorist groups to operate freely.
Our wealth nation counterparts are providing 0.7% of their Gross National Income to help people in developing nations where the U.S. only allocates 0.2%. American's believe that 25% of the federal budget goes to foreign aid, in actuality, it is less than 1%.
You have to invest to profit. Nearly all of the United States' top trading partners were once recipients of significant U.S. foreign aid (i.e. China and India)
