Hello, and thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page. I am volunteering as an intern at The Borgen Project, an influential organisation that helps tackle extreme poverty on a political level. Whilst the amount of individuals living in extreme poverty worldwide was consistently dropping, due to the detrimental impact of COVID-19, the number of people living in extreme poverty rose by an estimated 70 million people, according to The World Bank. Paired with rising food and energy prices, the war in Ukraine, and other current trends, it is predicted that in 2030, 574 million people, or 7% of the world’s population, will be living in extreme poverty. If 7% of your friends and family were facing extreme poverty, would you lend a helping hand?
No donation is too small, please consider donating and helping The Borgen Project fight against extreme poverty, thank you.
