Clinton Global Initiative awards honorary membership to Chife Foundation

21 Jun

We are proud to announce that the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) has extended an honorary membership to the Chife Foundation for 2012.     Each year, CGI offers a limited number of complimentary membership invitations to nongovernmental and nonprofit organizations such as our own.  Bridging knowledge and action, our work was recognized for its merit in the track of sustainability in the built environment.

CGI was created by President Clinton in 2005 in an effort to translate ideas into action. The mission of the Clinton Global Initiative is to inspire, connect, and empower a community of global leaders to forge solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.

“I have the utmost respect and admiration for President Clinton and the impact he has made both nationally and globally,” Executive Director of the Chife Foundation, Mrs. Gesare Chife said learning of the invitation.  “This is a great opportunity for the Foundation to build awareness around the wonderful work happening in Anam and to connect with organizations that share our commitment to action.”

Mrs. Chife will attend the CGI Annual Meeting in September, where of heads of state, government and business leaders, scholars, and NGO directors gather to analyze pressing global challenges, discuss the most effective solutions, and build lasting partnerships that enable them to create positive social change.

Chife Foundation staff will also attend the Mid-Year Meeting on Monday June 25th in New York City.
