Thomas Guerriero, CEO of WMX Group, Inc. (WEX:GR) founded the company with the intention to make a global difference on many levels with The World Mercantile Exchange. One of these focus areas is to help the developing regions of the world lift their standard and quality of life, by opening up the doors to fair global trade. By partnering with the Henri-Alain Baniakina Foundation, this becomes a reality. The World Mercantile Exchange has made the commitment to this very important cause, by giving a donation to the Baniakina Foundation, for each trade initiated within the entire continent of Africa on the World Mercantile Exchange. This will contribute to the many good causes of the foundation.
The Henri-Alain Baniakina Foundation operates in the Republic of Congo-Brazzaville. The Baniakina Foundation derives its motivation from the urgent need to rebuild Congo-Brazzaville after two devastating periods of civil war since the late 1990s. Their mission is to empower the local populations in all regions of the country through microfinancing aimed at creating economic fairness and opportunity as well as developing resources for improved access to healthcare and education. The Foundation is dedicated to the utilization of unique ideas to improve the quality of daily life for the people of Congo-Brazzaville. Therefore, the Foundation hires local employees and builds schools and medical clinics for the benefit of the local communities. The Baniakina Foundation is led by President Henri-Alain Baniakina, a diplomat, who is Columbia and Harvard University educated.
