Role: Political Affairs Team member
Fundraising Goal: £500
How did you get interested in global issues?
In the world no issue should be treated in isolation. We, as citizens have the obligation of showing compassion and support for those who live in poverty. This idea is a longstanding one, that has become more active within the last decade as, I realised how media platforms have the capacity to not only highlight global issues but also bring positive outcomes through community action at an international scale.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Not only is the right thing to do, but at the same time is something that can help Britain as a country. My position is that by advocating for the world’s poor communities I am also promoting change at home. The UK population must see itself as a member of a positive and active group of world citizens which through community empowerment and action can direct politicians to have a more positive and impactful action in the fight to end poverty. By supporting The Borgen Project I am supporting the group have a positive impact in strengthening its position as an ally for the worlds poor.
