The mission of the William J. Clinton Foundation is to improve global health, strengthen economies, promote healthier childhoods, and protect the environment by fostering partnerships among governments, businesses, nongovernmental organisations, and private citizens to turn good intentions into measurable results.
Since founding the Clinton Foundation in 2001, President Clinton’s work has improved the lives of millions around the world through the provision of HIV/AIDS treatment, the investment in 14,000 American schools, providing training and mentorship to over 26,000 micro-entrepreneurs, and cutting over 2 million tonnes of greenhouse gases in some of the world’s largest cities.
On 23rd May 2012, The Rumi Foundation hosted President Clinton for a lunch attended by 90 of the UK’s leading entrepreneurs, politicians, chief executives and philanthropists. The purpose of the lunch was to encourage leaders to think about how they can actively help others in our society. President Clinton discussed the work of the Clinton Foundation and provided inspiration to many guests to get more involved with helping those less fortunate, both in their own communities and all around the world.
