Carolyn Miles: Hillary Clinton is absolutely right

    Hillary Clinton’s speech at the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative sure caught the attention of international nongovernmental organizations. In her remarks Monday, the U.S. secretary of state indicated she favors a broader network of partners for implementing U.S. foreign aid programs, which at the moment mainly includes iNGOs.

    Carolyn Miles, president and CEO of Save the Children USA, believes the former U.S. first lady and senator gave the “right message.” Watch the above clip of our conversation with Miles on the sidelines of the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative in New York.

    Devex also spoke with Ritu Sharma, co-founder and president of Women Thrive Worldwide on the same day Clinton gave her speech. She reiterated the mission of iNGOs and affirmed that they “have a lot to offer.”  

    Lars Schwetje contributed reporting from New York.
