Rotarian Charles Warne and his wife Gillaine were born and raised in Australia, starting their careers as farmers in the Central Plateau of New South Wales. In 2000, following a visit by Gillaine to Haiti, an involvement in mission work began. The mission work continues to this day and has been a passion leading to the direction of activity on three farms and a Vocational School.
As Rotarians the Warne’s have worked with Rotary Clubs and Rotary International to receive Grants for the projects of “Partners in Agriculture” Inc. In 2019 Rotary International granted through District 7750 and the Rotary Club of Greenville $99,750 each year for three years for the creation of a goat breeding facility on the Lacheto farm in the Central Plateau of Haiti.
