This summer I wanted to do something truly meaningful with my time, and I think I found the perfect position in the Political Affairs internship with the Borgen Project. The Borgen Project strives to educate people about global poverty, and encourages congressional leadership to focus on legislation related to international aid and development. This is truly a top down approach, and addresses the long-term issues that make poverty a perpetual crisis. By focusing on legislation that helps to stabilize regions, empowers the denizens to learn about sustainable agriculture, or creates a path for women to enter the workforce, we are not only helping those who need the most, but also decreasing threats to the US and boosting the domestic economy. By donating to the Borgen Project you are allowing us to continue our efforts. This helps us to meet with members of Congress and continue leaving an international impact. There are many misconceptions surrounding international aid, and questions about the good it does, but after learning about the Borgen Project, I can say that global poverty is an issue that should be conquered today and your help is greatly needed. Thank you for your help.
