In October 2011, HTF Founder and Executive Director Rick Barger and his wife Harriet met with Linklaters, one of the largest global law firms in the world, at their London headquarters. Linklaters emphasizes attention to justice and sponsors two HELP law students, Frederica Pierre-Louis and Nardine Desulma.
Linklaters’ Global Community Investment Manager, Matt Sparkes, has this to say about the Haitian Timoun Foundation and HELP:
HTF’s expertise, credibility and simple passion for the people of Haiti made them an ideal partner for Linklaters. We wanted to invest in the future and HTF immediately translated that into a project - HELP - that will develop the country’s leaders of tomorrow. We are moved and inspired by the impact we are now making. This owes sole thanks to HTF who are professional, responsive and so very positive; it is a partnership which I am sure will last.
