Title

Gregory Carr at VOA, Founder Gregory C. Carr Foundation

Description

After retiring from his internet and phone businesses in 1998, Gregory Carr dedicated the rest of his life to philanthropy and charity. The year after, he got his start by creating the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard University, which seeks to implement save human rights across the world. In the same year he also founded the non-profit organization Gregory C. Carr Foundation. One of the big goals of this foundation is the 30 year long mission to restore the Gorongosa National Park in central Mozambique along with aiding the communities around the park. In addition, he can even turn bad land into good land, as he purchased a compound formally owned by the Aryan nations and other Nazi oriented groups and turned it into a peace park in Idaho. Idaho also has a museum he helped co-found along with the Market Theater he opened. Today, he sits on the board of another non-profit organization, Internews, which advocates independent journalism.
