Hello, I am Santiago and I am fundraising for global poverty as part of my summer internship at The Borgen Project. The contrast between living in Latin America and England has deepened my worldview and consciousness regarding the amount of economic, strategic, health and social aid provided to those suffering from extreme poverty. Fighting against poverty not only translates into reduced impoverishment rates but fewer crime rates, stronger institutional governance and improved national security not only for the donor country but for the recipient one. Hence, reducing corruption, fostering meritocracy and overall contributing to the shrinking of the political and social flaws that I have seen damaging my home country since I was a kid.
