Next week, 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. President Clinton and Chelsea will be visiting Clinton Foundation sites that are providing people and communities with investment and resources for greater opportunity.
In 1998, President Clinton first traveled to Africa as President, which was the longest and most extensive trip to the continent made by a sitting American president. During the previous year, Chelsea and then-First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton made a seminal visit to Africa. Since their initial trips, President Clinton and Chelsea 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.
