Our World: Clinton in Africa explores the work of the Clinton Foundation and asks what role charity should play on a continent that is becoming more economically assertive

Our World: Clinton in Africa travels to East Africa with the former US President Bill Clinton and his daughter Chelsea. Travelling across Tanzania, Zanzibar and Rwanda, presenter Komla Dumor examines the work of the Clinton Foundation as it attempts to improve health care, increase farm incomes and tackle climate change. In an in-depth interview, Komla questions the former President about the role of big western donors in improving the lives of Africans and what role charity should play on a continent that is becoming more economically assertive.

It's been more than ten years since President Bill Clinton left office, but his engagement in global affairs shows no signs of abating. After leaving the White House, he set up the Clinton Global Initiative and - along with his wife and daughter - has raised hundreds of millions of dollars from private donors and corporations to fight HIV and AIDS, tackle Malaria and provide health care services in poor communities across the world – but especially in Africa.
