Andrew Meade, Founder and Co-Chair
Andrew Meade is the Director of International Services at Vassar College.
"Over six years ago, my husband, Andrew had a 'little idea' of supporting a school in Haiti which he took to the Dean of the College.
I never really thought that I could change anything until I saw Lila and Andrew, two individuals who have devoted their lives to change for people who could've easily been ignored.

"The clinic will be open twice a month and may see perhaps 70 to 80 patients a day," said Andrew Meade, project founder and co-chairman.
Construction is to begin next month, he said, followed by a group trip to the village in March.
"They felt that if the students were fed, they would come to school," said co-chairwoman Lila Meade, who is married to Andrew Meade.
"The original school in Chermaitre was a one-room structure," Andrew Meade said.
Andrew Meade, who is director of international services at Vassar, said the original volunteer team consisted of friends and family, including daughters Lily and Kristen.
A handful of Vassar students soon joined the group.
After years of canceled trips due to hurricanes and political strife, a crew of nine Vassar Haiti Project volunteers arrived in Haiti in 2007.
"We flew in to Cap-Haitien," Andrew Meade said.
"There were a lot of tears and a lot of pride," Andrew Meade said.
"We did not see any structural damage in Chermaitre," Andrew Meade said.
"Now a series of cisterns and PVC piping brings water to a well right by the school," Andrew Meade said.
The group has since focused on four primary initiatives in Haiti: improving access to education, health care and clean water, and aiding in reforestation efforts through the planting of fruit and lumber trees. The organization has helped to plant 5,000 apricot, oak, cedar, lemon and mango trees. In March, volunteers will observe schools and a hospital in Cap-Haitien, work in a nearby medical clinic for a day and once again make the steep hike to Chermaitre.
Meade said the project, which has almost 100 volunteers, offers its members a profound learning experience.
"They're exposed to the idea that it is possible for one human being to make a difference - that sometimes it just takes one idea to create fundamental, positive change in the world," he said.

Lila and Andrew Meade, who co-direct the project, said sales like Vassar's offer Haitian artists one of the only avenues to reach buyers for their works.
" 'Tipa, tipa' means 'step by step' in Haitian Creole and that is how this project has developed," said Andrew Meade, director of international services at Vassar. "This year, we're proudly celebrating our 10-year anniversary of creating change through art. We have an extraordinary legacy owing to the collective efforts of volunteers, organizations, our partners in Haiti, as well as the unwavering support of art buyers and donors."
Project members said Haiti needs more help than ever.
"Our work has never been more important than it is today," Meade said.
