The PETNA Foundation’s first challenge was to help improve a village in Grenada. At the advice of close friends, our work began in one of the poorest villages on the island. Located on the outskirts of the town of Victoria, the village was once known as “Grand Provah,” meaning great poverty.
Since then, PETNA has provided financial support for many students to receive college education. Some of our students are working toward graduate degrees. Others have already returned to their villages to teach and rebuild their communities.
In addition to providing financial assistance, the Foundation provides mentorship to students, families and communities in which our students live.
In order to make a significant change in our world, we must directly impact the lives of the people living in the countries and communities that suffer.
