"Building on President Clinton’s long-standing commitment to Africa, the Clinton Foundation partnered with the Hunter Foundation in 2006 to launch the Clinton Hunter Development Initiative, which is investing $100 million over 10 years to catalyze sustainable economic growth in Africa. CHDI is working in Rwanda and Malawi – at the invitation of these countries’ governments - to strengthen agriculture, develop agri-businesses, and increase access to clean water, quality health care, and education – in ways that can be locally sustained." [1]

"Launching at the Clinton Global Initiative (“CGI”), the CHDI has an initial $100m of seed funding pledged by Sir Tom Hunter’s philanthropy, The Hunter Foundation who will work in partnership with The William J. Clinton Foundation to deliver on the Initiative’s goals." [2]
