BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
I am currently interning for the Borgen Project, one of the most effective forces in raising awarness and funding for foreign aid. The Borgen Project is a great group because it rallies congress to allocate more money to foreign aid with an argument based on humanitariansim, but also U.S. interests. The people at the Borgen Project promote the fact that more development abroad means more participants in the global market and more buyers for American goods. If we spend money of foreign aid, we can help those in need while setting up markets to boost our economy at home. We should also note that the United States spends a small portion of its GDP on foreign aid compared to other wealthy countries. Please consider donating to the Borgen Project, it truly is a great cause.
