In this sit down with WSJ Live, Grace Hightower De Niro discusses her new venture, Grace Hightower & Coffees of Rwanda, which will support Rwanda's coffee farmers and economy. De Niro explains that she was inspired by Rwandan President Paul Kagame's "Trade not Aid" platform. De Nire explains, "I love the fact that you are helping the farmers to have sustainable business and at the same time leaving them with their integrity."
Despite her world famous husband, De Niro has stayed largely out of the press. But it is great to see her doing something more than just giving money to help a cause.
