The Clinton Global Initiative
Co-founded by Matt Damon, since 1990, Water.org has been committed to providing safe drinking water and sanitation to people in developing countries. Working in partnership with donors and local communities, WaterPartners has helped thousands of people develop accessible, sustainable, community-level water supplies. This documentary short chronicled the journey and experience of six UNC students who traveled to India and Bangladesh to work with water.org.
The Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) convenes global leaders to create and implement solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. CGI wanted to bring their stories to life for their annual conference in Washington D.C. 35 production teams from 10 universities traveled to 102 countries to document the work of more than forty organizations and partners, including Livestrong, Brad Pitt’s Make it Right and Matt Damon’s water.org, from all around the world, ultimately resulting in over 100 Student of the World film productions since 2006.
