Welcome to the Andrew Grene Foundation
"Who We Are: A five-minute video on the first three years of the Foundation"
In a country where 90 per cent of the population is unemployed, we’ve provided microloans to help women establish subsistence businesses and provide for their children. We’ve just built a new school in Port-au-Prince, where an estimated 80% of the schools previously in operation had been destroyed in the catastrophic earthquake of 2010. We seek to aid a land ravaged by years of natural disaster and political upheaval.
Our work is dedicated to the memory of Andrew Grene, a UN worker and one of the many thousands of people who died in the Haiti earthquake of 12 January 2010. You can read more about Andrew on this site.
We’ve done a lot already, but need more help to keep making a difference. And that’s where you come in. You may be a corporate sponsor with time, money or equipment to donate. Maybe you’d like to organise events or explore volunteering opportunities; or you might consider one-off donations or make regular contributions. Whatever has brought you here, welcome – we hope you will join our cause. And when the time is right, we hope you will contact us to start a conversation
Andrew Grene, 1965-2010
"Andrew will be remembered for his formidable intellect, his engaging warmth, his enormous compassion. He accorded the same respect to the marginalized and destitute that he gave to world leaders. His profound conviction was that being human was what mattered - the rest involved mere trappings. His enthusiasm for life gave us hope, his ebullient friendship gave us joy."
- Chris Coleman,
UN Official and colleague of Andrew
