BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
The Borgen Project works with congressional leaders to support foreign aid legislation, builds awareness of global poverty, and educates citizens on advocacy skills. The organization is made up of four paid staffers and thousands of volunteers. Less than one percent of the U.S.'s federal budget goes to foreign aid. The amount of aid should be increased, and I love the Borgen Project because it is working on supporting legislation that would accomplish just that.
