2008 – Barrick Gold commits $6 million for Peru projects
Barrick Gold has announced it will work in partnership with the Clinton-Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative (CGSGI), committing $6 million over three years to improve child nutrition and support sustainable business development near its mining operations in Peru.
CGSGI is a partnership between the Clinton Foundation (the ‘implementing partner’ for CGSGI), business, governments, local communities, and NGOs to increase the effectiveness and sustainability of social and economic development efforts in countries where the natural resource industries are an important part of the economy. Marking the first of its programs in Peru, the CGSGI has committed $6 million to reduce chronic child nutrition and $4 million for market-driven enterprise development. . . .
Maybe the Clinton-Giustra Sustainable Growth Initiative “partnership” with the Clinton Foundation should just be renamed CLINTON-CASH
