Borgen Project Highlights #GlobalPOV Project

A black and white image featuring a chalkboard with the words "THE BORGEN PROJECT" written in large, bold letters. Above the chalkboard, a caption reads, "WE FIGHT FOR THE UNDERDOG" in uppercase, black text on a white background. To the right of the chalkboard, four children are seated on the ground, looking towards the camera.
