Why I'm Part Of It: "Most people have a little or vague idea about the degree of global poverty. Poverty can be horrific and it is our responsibility to do something by acknowledging this fact. The Borgen Project does exactly that. It acknowledges this fact and through advocacy tries to make people realize how cruel poverty can be. That's why I am proud to be a part of it."
