NYU Wagner Student's Nonprofit Invited to Clinton Global Initiative University
Clean Water for Everyone, a nonprofit organization founded and led by NYU Wagner’s Wemimo S. Abbey, has been invited to attend the Clinton Global Initiative University meeting March 21-23 at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona.
The meeting will bring together more than 1,000 student innovators like Abbey who have made commitments to action in: education; environment and climate change; peace and human rights; poverty alleviation; and public health. He will have the opportunity to attend plenary sessions, working sessions, and other special events devoted to these five focus areas, and to build networks, skills, and potential partnerships.
Abbey (as he likes to be called) is working at Wagner toward his MPA. Through Clean Water for Everyone, he has been working to provide access to clean and affordable water supply in developing nations. The nonprofit organization's social venture project in Ghana currently addresses issues of sanitation, sustainability, and women empowerment.
