"Haiti is my birthplace and since it's inception as the first black republic it has been isolated and shunned. Like an accident prone child, that small caribbean nation has seen it's share of calamities, both manmade and natural. The latest was a devastating earthquake that left her crippled. Many have felt the need to come to her aid, and the Green Family Foundation's efforts are most commendable, especially their president Kimberly Green. Devoting most of her time on-site there, I'm particularly impressed with the array of her interests. Yes, most of the foundation's interest is directed toward the imperious needs of the impaired, but what impressed me more was her efforts in the preservation of Haiti's culture and in it's promotion. That, to me, in the end, will hasten the healing process."
Leonie Hermantin, Deputy Director, The Lambi Fund of Haiti
"I have been aware of the Green Family Foundation's work in Haiti for the past 6 years. It has been a pleasure to see the Foundation's work and priorities evolve from traditional development funding strategies to providing support to institutions and projects which nurture Haitian culture and national identity. The Green Family Foundation's latest projects should be defined as gestures of love and solidarity to the Haitian people and most importantly represent enduring cultural legacies to our beloved Haiti."
Gepsie Mettellus, Executive Director, Sant La
"I am grateful for the Green Family Foundation’s focus on rebuilding and reconstruction in Haiti in the wake of the devastating 2010 earthquake. I am especially pleased that the focus is on preserving and promoting Haiti’s rich cultural patrimony."
President Bill Clinton
"I commend GFF for all the good work you have already done in the country, and I encourage you to continue your efforts. Together, we can promote economic growth and help improve the lives of the Haitian people. We have created momentum. Now, we must focus on laying the foundations for helping sustainable development. "
