“We are building relationships; and we have a Love and Passion for the work that we do.”
From HGI's first visit, traveling on an unbeaten path through the bushes of rural Arthington; and the organization's efforts since then to establish a foothold by building a meaningful partnership with the people living there; we have always remained focused on the mission and what drives us as an organization. We are driven by a passion for what we do, and a love for the people and place that we support.
HGI's CEO and Board President celebrated Christmas with the children and residents of Arthington.
It is that passion and love that drove HGI's founder & CEO, Henrietta White-Holder and board president, Mackenzie L'Mareeto travel from the US and Australia in December 2014 to check in on the organization's development work in Liberia and enjoy the Christmas holidays celebrating with the children and residents of the villages.
Over 200 people attended, some traveling on foot, for four or more hours from distant villages to participate in the merriment. It was such an exciting time and wonderful to see the sense of optimism and hope that these people has for what is to come for their community. The children were especially delightful.
