BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
The Borgen Project is a national campaign working to improve lives of people living in extreme poverty. They operate through lobbying Congress, mobilizing constituents, and raising awareness.
2.5 billion people lack access to improved sanitation and 1 billion children deprived of one or more services essential to survival and development. In addition to that, the number of people suffering from hunger is greater than
the population of the U.S., Canada and EU combined. However, it would only cost 30 billion dollars per year to end world hunger (the US military budget is 500 billion).
Over the last 20 years, global poverty was cut in half. By raising money, we can contribute to reducing it even more and in less time. Please help me reach my goal!
