There is some sort of controversy about education matters and education opportunities. Those ones change depending from one country to other but, in big terms, the reality is the same: some people does not have access to superior education for economic issues. Sometimes it happens because the country is not prepared for education loans, banks does not give it neither, maybe the family of the young person unknowns how s/he can have access to those resources… It can be so many reasons. Still, this does not mean that this obstacles should stop anyone about to get his/her goals.

In 2007, President Clinton launched the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) for to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world.

Each year, CGI U hosts a meeting where students, university representatives, topic experts, and celebrities come together to discuss and develop innovative solutions to pressing global challenges. Students create their own Commitments to Action that address issues on campus, in local communities, or around the world. Since 2008, students have made more than 6,250 commitments, and nearly $3 million in funding has been awarded to these commitment-makers through CGI U.

This year, it is going to make 10 years since this series of opportunities started so why do not to take a look to them for to know more? They do not only help students to get their loans if not to start their projects around the world. You can know more about the different initiatives the program have here. But also, you can watch the video bellow. Please, take your time to discover how you can improve your future or the future of the ones close to you than you care about.
