From losing close to 100 family members to the Holocaust to dedicating her life to helping developing countries achieve autonomy, Henryka Manès shares her amazing journey with us.
Henryka has been working with developing and emerging economy countries for the past thirty years, in Africa, Asia, Eastern, and Central Europe, the Middle East, and South America. Haiti is her 25th country and likely her last one. As the founder of Ecoworks International, she has devoted the last 11 years of her life to developing a program in Haiti that focuses on establishing agricultural cooperatives owned and governed by farmers for farmers. The co-ops are economic development engines and become a legacy farmers can leave to their children and grandchildren, therefore building self-reliance for those regions to further expand into greater territories.
After all these years, she is still as passionate about her work as when she started. In 2016, she received the Tikkun Olam Award for her work in my beloved Haiti. Henryka has been an inspiration for me, a mentor and I’m lucky to also call her my friend. I hope you find value in her message just like I do on our weekly calls! Without further ado, it’s time to Get Social!
