BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
In a Nutshell: We fight extreme poverty.
Mission Statement: The Borgen Project believes that leaders of the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty. We’re the innovative, national campaign that is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy.
Your contribution will support our organization in lobbying Congressional leaders to make eradicating global poverty a main issue that deserves to maintain or an increase in the federal budget for U.S.A.I.D.
Assisting others, internationally also helps us domestically. By reducing global poverty, we elimiate chaos and create food, economic and politcal stability. In turn thus we create more international markets.
You can help by making a donation here or by calling your Congressional leaders and voicing your support for increasing or maintaining the budget for U.S.A.I.D.
