Beginning Monday, November 9 through Wednesday, November 11, President Bill Clinton will visit the work of the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) commitments in Latin America.

The trip will highlight the Clinton Foundation’s cross-sector work in the region.

The Clinton Foundation, through the Clinton Giustra Enterprise Partnership (CGEP), is working to develop social enterprises that foster sustainable economic development aimed at helping people work themselves out of poverty, with a focus on increasing opportunities for girls and women. In Latin America, this includes equipping women with sales and skills training and a basket of fortified food and consumer products, which the entrepreneurs then sell to others within their communities – providing essential, life-changing goods and helping to increase household incomes. CGEP also works to empower smallholder farmers by giving them better access to markets and infrastructural improvements for their locally grown produce.
