BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
The Borgen Project is a global poverty advocacy organization that seeks to improve living conditions for the world's poorest. We believe the best way to effect lasting change is through policy improvements - so we advocate for all kinds of poverty-reducing legislation focusing on issues such as hunger, health care, clean water, and increased access to electricity.
Statistics show foreign aid is having a huge and positive impact on reducing poverty and improving living conditions for the world's poorest. It also holds benefits for the U.S. such as expanding the market for American products and improving national security. However, there's still a lot to be done! If you've been following the news at all this summer, you know this is especially true right now. Anything you're able to contribute is greatly appreciated.
