Hi everybody! My name is Charlotte and I am volunteering as a political affairs intern at The Borgen Project as I believe in the importance of addressing the issue of global poverty. Global poverty affects around 9.2% of the population making it one of the most urgent issues facing the international community. Unfortunately, the progress towards reducing global poverty has slowed. I was particularly devastated to learn of the UK government’s decision to reduce Foreign Aid. As a result was motivated to work for The Borgen Project to mobilise leaders and ensure global poverty continues to be a priority for states foreign policy.
