What do you think about the former president of Unite State Bill Clinton Receive More Than $700,000 For Haiti Agriculture?
Here is the story
A charity for former U.S. President Bill Clinton on Monday awarded more than $700,000 to develop the country’s agriculture sector.
The Clinton Foundation announced that the grants will go toward efforts to plant trees, build a coffee farm and train farmers.
Clinton has been the United Nations’ special envoy to Haiti since shortly after the devastating 2009 earthquake. He left Haiti following a two-day visit accompanied by potential investors representing a perfume company, restaurants and a lingerie company.
‘‘The country has been beat down so long and the controversies are so familiar to people that it’s sometimes too easy to see the down side. I’m not naive. I know what the down side is,’’ he told The Associated Press. But, even so, he said, ‘‘This is a place of staggering potential.’’
One of the delegation’s visits on Monday was to a brewery Heineken NV purchased last year. The company announced on Monday that it would invest $40 million to expand the brewery and help farmers who supply it with sorghum. read more at http://www.boston.com/travel/destinations/2013/03/11/clinton-awards-more-than-haiti/O5wjw37k51JPg2x1rJtgTO/story.html
