President and Chelsea Clinton Travel to Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, Rwanda, and South Africa

 

MEDIA ADVISORY: President and Chelsea Clinton Travel to Africa to Visit Clinton Foundation Projects

Jul 26, 2013 | Clinton Foundation | New York, NY  | Press Release
Visit will highlight Foundation work in economic growth and empowerment, equality of opportunity, and health access in 5 countries
(New York, NY)—On July 31- August 8, President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton will travel to Africa to visit Clinton Foundation projects in Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania (including Zanzibar), Rwanda, and South Africa.  This trip, and the projects visited, will highlight many of the issues that President and Chelsea Clinton have long worked on—economic growth and empowerment, equality of opportunity, and health access. 
Fifteen years ago, in 1998, President Clinton first traveled to Africa as President. This was the longest and most extensive trip to the continent made by a sitting American president, and was the first time a sitting president traveled to each of his six destinations.  President Clinton's trip followed a seminal visit that Chelsea and then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton made the year before.   Since their initial trips, President and Chelsea Clinton have continued to build upon their longstanding commitment to Africa through the work of the Clinton Foundation, providing investment, opportunity, and health access to underserved communities.  In July 2012, both President and Chelsea Clinton traveled to Africa to visit Clinton Foundation sites in South Africa, Mozambique, Rwanda, and Uganda, and in October 2012, Chelsea visited Nigeria for the launch of the Nigerian government's Save One Million Lives Initiative to reduce child mortality.
