Latest update

We have been overwhelmed by your generosity and we are delighted to say the we have reached our origional goal. We now have the first years running costs of the school completely covered.
We have decided that we are going to increase our goal, the additional sum will pay for the school to buy a piece of land on which the students and staff will grow food to generate income. Now, the school can become financially self sustaining.


The school is due to open on August 31st. It will accommodate up to 250 14-18 year olds in 6 class rooms. There is currently no school for kids of that age in that part of Port au Prince. There will be a computer lab sponsored by Microsoft with 6 computers powered by solar panels. There is no electricity to the school, but there will be internet connection. A sign of our times.

 

London to Paris here we come !

The AGF Riders

On September 8th 2011, Simon Perutz, Michael Lyons and Mike Hennel will leave London to cycle the 234 miles to Paris in just 3 days. The reason :

 

In August this year the Andrew Grene Foundation (AGF) will be opening a new school for 14 -18 year olds in Cite Soleil, Port au Prince, Haiti, where no secondary school exists. The Andrew Grene High School will eventually be self-sustaining but needs funds for staff and operational costs for the first couple of years. It is a great opportunity to give back and help some kids have a better life in Haiti.
