Brooks World Poverty Institute

The Clinton Global Initiative was established by former US President, Bill Clinton. It is a gathering of leaders from across the world and all sectors of society which includes heads of states (former and curent), major philanthropists, foundation and NGO heads and CEOs. It is a non-partisan catalyst for action, bringing together global leaders to discuss challenges facing the world today and devise and implement innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges.

The initiative culminates in an annual conference, at which each invited guest must make a specific commitment to address one of the focus areas. Rory was invited to be a member in 2007 and has, on behalf of the Foundation, made two multi-year commitments to action – in 2007 and 2008.
