Clinton Global Initiative hails ninemillion campaign as a good cause

Summary

NEW YORK, United States, October 1 (UNHCR) – Former United States President Bill Clinton has called for renewed action to help millions of vulnerable children obtain an education.

Speaking during the annual summit of his Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) in New York last week, President Clinton urged people to visit the ninemillion.org website, which is at the centre of a UNHCR-led campaign to bring education to nine million uprooted children.

The ninemillion campaign brings together UNHCR and private sector partners Nike, Microsoft, Manpower, the advertising group WPP and GSMA, an association of mobile phone operators and equipment suppliers. It aims to raise US$220 million by 2010 to allow millions of refugee and vulnerable children to get an education.
