Story

Hey Folks! I am interning at Human Resources in The Borgen Project. The Borgen Project believes that leaders of the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty. The innovative, national campaign is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy. Some of the causes that are very close to my heart are supporting the girls and women disproportionately affected by the pandemic whether they've been out of school or pushed into a child marriage with the Girls LEAD Act, reducing preventable causes of death relating to childbirth and pregnancy with the Reach Every Mother and Child Act, convince the US Congress to provide foreign assistance and international aid to developing nations with the Funding for International Affairs Budget Act. Any money donated will help tackle the issues that I'm extremely passionate about.

WHAT AM I RAISING MONEY FOR?
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.

How Does the Organization Operate? Good question! We use four key methods:

1.) Advocate: We meet with U.S. Congressional leaders to secure support for crucial poverty-reducing legislation.
2.) Mobilize: We mobilize people across the globe behind efforts to make poverty a political priority.
3.) Educate: We teach basic advocacy skills that allow citizens to communicate with their government.
4.) Issue Message: We build awareness of global issues and innovations in poverty reduction through our online and community presence.

What has The Borgen Project Accomplished?
We encourage you to check out our success tracker on our webpage! You can read all about them by following this link: https://borgenproject.org/success-tracker.

Your gift to The Borgen Project helps us shape U.S. foreign policy for the betterment of humankind and ensures that The Borgen Project continues to fight for the underdog.
 
PS: I had to mention that the fundraiser was raising money for me under the column because the site only accepted non-profits registered in India. As the Borgen Project is registered in the US, I didn't find access to the documents, codes and government verification required to officially list it as an NGO. However, I assure you that 100% of the funds generated will be directed towards The Borgen Project to support its cause.
