Conor spent eight years at the EastWest Institute (EWI) both in Prague and the EU office in Brussels. During that time, he developed and managed a wide variety of projects focusing on issues such as peace and reconciliation in the Balkans and harmonizing anti trafficking policy. In 2001 he was made Deputy Director of EWIs program of security and Good Governance, and served as the Advisor on EU Affairs to EWIs Worldwide Security Program. Conor left EWI in 2004 on an around the world trip, during which he volunteered in the Little Childrens Home in the village of Godawari, Nepal. When he learned that the children in the home were not orphaned, but were in fact trafficked, he moved to Kathmandu, Nepal, and started Next Generation Nepal, a nonprofit organization dedicated to reconnecting trafficked children with their families. Conor is a citizen of the U.S. and Ireland and a graduate of the University of Virginia and the NYU School of Business. He is the President and Founder of Next Generation Nepal, and the author of Little Princes. He lives in Connecticut with his wife and family.
Join Book Club Girl on Air, of the blog Book Club Girl, as she welcomes Conor Grennan, author of Little Princes: One Man's Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal.
An astonishing testament to true courage, the transformative power of love, and the ability of one man to make a real difference.
In search of adventure, twenty-nine-year-old Conor Grennan embarked on a yearlong journey around the globe, beginning with a three-month stint volunteering at an orphanage in civil war–torn Nepal. But a shocking truth would forever change his life: these rambunctious, resilient children were not orphans at all but had been taken from their families by child traffickers who falsely promised to keep them safe from war before abandoning them in the teeming chaos of Kathmandu. For Conor, what started as a footloose ramble became a dangerous, dedicated mission to unite youngsters he had grown to love with the parents they had been stolen from—a breathtaking adventure, as Conor risked everything in the treacherous Nepalese mountains to bring the children home.
“Funny, touching, tragic….A remarkable tale of corruption, child trafficking and civil war in a far away land—and one man’s extraordinary quest to reunite lost Nepalese children with their parents.”
—Neil White, author of In the Sanctuary of Outcasts
