Toni Lyerly is a teacher, political activist, volunteer, philanthropist and President of The Faile Foundation.  Her work with Habitat for Humanity International created programs in the US and Zambia that empower girls and women to build their homes and become financially independent. Toni grew up on a sailboat traveling the BVI and USVI, and learning early in life from her father, John B. Faile, to love the environment and to practice philanthropy. Toni believes if we follow our path in life and share our unique abilities, people who can carry our dreams forward appear. After learning Charlotte McDevitt’s vision for Green VI,  Toni committed to making this a reality. Her diagnosis with Parkinson’s disease led her to discover that connecting with and empowering others is as powerful a way to fulfill her purpose as doing things herself.  Toni is pleased to be one of the many people helping Green VI achieve its goals.
