Bono and Colorado Senator Join Together in Fighting Poverty
Bono, known for his philanthropic endeavors, met with Colorado Senator Cory Gardner recently in D.C. to discuss fighting global poverty with private-sector dollars.
People in fragile and developing countries across the world would benefit from the bi-partisan 'BUILD Act' in Congress. BUILD stands for 'Better Utilization of Investments Leading to Development.'
The U.S. does spend a lot on foreign aid, but it often isn't enough. The Build Act, co-sponsored by Senator Garnder would help by fast-tracking endeavors that will create jobs in foreign countries such as Africa.
The ONE Campaign, co-founded by Bono is a big proponent of the idea and had a meeting with Senator Gardner to thank him for coming on board with the bill.
