Name: Reuben Cochrane
Location: Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK
Fundraising Goal: $500
How did you get interested in global issues?
From school to family to travelling I consistently learnt that there are lots of simple things that are unjust in our society. I always felt like there was an easy solution but there was no awareness or vehicle of motivation driving change. I am now studying social sciences at university which has channeled my interest in global issues and through The Borgen Project I think I can act to incite this change.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
If I can then I will! I believe that the most effective way to create change is through promoting awareness of social issues. The Borgen Project provides a platform to enable this and put pressure on US and UK policymakers to implement solutions that help reduce global poverty. Hopefully, this will lead to long-term support mechanisms that foster prosperity. As a result, especially in the current socio-economic climate of warfare and Covid-19, I value any opportunity to provide my support in helping the world’s poor.
