Abbey Wemimo

New York University Robert F. Wagner Story on CEO Abbey:

“First-year NYU Wagner student Wemimo Abbey participated in a youth leadership forum entitled “Youth Leadership Perspectives on Challenges of the World’s Children” on the occasion of the United Nations’ Children Day on November 20.

The event was held by the Peace Island Institute(PII) in New York.

Abbey, founder of Clean Water for Everyone, mentioned a huge problem — the limited access to clean water by an estimated 2 billion people around the world. His organization works to address the shortage at hundreds of schools in Nigeria.

Ambassador Carlos Gonzalez, Permanent Representative of El Salvador to the United Nations, delivered the day’s main address. Concerning his own participation, Abbey commented later, “It was humbling.”
