We are pleased to announce the appointment of André Michelet-Figueroa as Director of the Children’s Foundation of Ecuador. He replaced Noémie Legendre, partly facing major challenges in the Democratic Republic of Congo …
Noémie took charge of the Foundation at a pivotal moment – shortly after the sisters left management in both Montreal and Ecuador. With outstanding work and dedication Noémie has allowed the FEE to succeed in its evolution over the past three years. We wish her the very best as she prepares to live her first experience in the NGO Médecins Sans Frontières for a six-month mission.
Of French-Puerto Rican origin, André has already worked with children, first as a teacher in Burkina Faso in the summer of his 19th birthday, but also as tutor for disadvantaged children in the suburbs of Boston in the association Earthen Vessels . With a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in Spain (ICADE) and a Master’s degree in International Business at HEC Montréal, André has the training and experience to give the foundation a new lease of life.
Beyond the day-to-day administration of the Foundation, André will seek to develop new avenues of financing while at the same time offering closer support to the FASMRC in Ecuador. He will also be in the office from Monday to Thursday, from 9 am to 5 pm, to welcome you!
Chairman of the Board of Directors
