CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE (CGI)
Commitment to Action
ROCKBlue's CGI Commitment
In September 2023, we announced our commitment to expand our work that helps our utility partners to bring clean water and basic sanitation to 2 million more people in sub-Saharan Africa by 2025, increasing our impact to more than 24 million people.
OUR FOUNDER, PETER MACY, AND SECRETARY HILLARY CLINTON, AT THE CGI MEETING IN NEW YORK CITY ON SEPTEMBER 19, 2023.
An ever-changing climate has contributed to increasing instances of drought, flooding and other forms of extreme weather that impact the availability of clean water around the world. In climate-sensitive sub-Saharan Africa, we are committed to working with our partners to mitigate the effects of our shifting climate and help provide water security for urban communities that need it most.
According to the World Health Organization, nearly 3.6 million people die each year from water-related diseases — more than half are children. Unsafe water and poor sanitation the leading causes of death in children under five in sub-Saharan Africa. ROCKBlue currently supports local partners to provide clean water and basic sanitation to over 22 million people. Our commitment will reach 2 million more.

Our support of water service providers (WSPs) in sub-Saharan Africa who provide clean water and sanitation services helps promote opportunities for inclusive economic growth in local communities. At the same time, our WULUW initiative mentors and helps empower women with information, tools and resources to become leaders in the male-dominated water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector to fight the Global Water Crisis.
