Former President Bill Clinton, who heads the private foundation, made the announcement Tuesday before the end of a two-day trip to the Caribbean nation, where he used to serve as a United Nations special envoy. His foundation focuses on bringing investors to Haiti.
The grant goes to Sustainable Recycling Solutions, a business founded in 2012 by a team of Haitian business leaders and foreign aid workers that pays hundreds of Haitians to collect recyclable materials from trash heaps and landfills. The scraps are then sorted by type and turned into new consumer products such as clothes, lumber, furniture and toys. via | Fox News
