Haiti - Education : Inauguration of the new College Andrew Grene to Cité Soleil
The President Michel Martelly, has inaugurated, yesterday Tuesday, the new premises of the College Andrew Grene, located in the Village of Haitians repatriated, in the town of Cité Soleil.

The Head of State sent his compliments to the Digicel Foundation and to the Andrew Grene Foundation, that have built this school in partnership in favor of the underprivileged children of Haiti. "All efforts that are aimed the performance and general education will benefit of my entire support", asserted the President which has argued in favor of compulsory education for all children whose "the place is in the schools." He did not fail to deplore the lack of school infrastructure as is the case in Duvivier, neighborhood populated by some 20,000 inhabitants, and on the entire commune of Cité Soleil.



An insufficiency which is found in the words of Professor Guerrier Jean Robert, Director of the Presbyteral School of Duvivier, the latter considers that the poverty of the inhabitants of the town slows down the functioning of schools. For him, the college Andrew Grene represents the "first school of value" that can accommodate young people until the terminal class since the teaching in other educational institutions of the commune stop on the ninth year of basic education (Secondary 4) with an "poor" education or beacause the parents could not afford to pay teachers "qualified".

Despite the obstacles, the President of the Republic wants to increase efforts to make schools accessible to all Haitian children. He announced that the program of free education will be applied adequately to the College Andrew Grene. A gesture applauded by the students whose parents will not have any school fees to pay to the direction of the institution from the next school year. Indeed, school fees will be paid up to 50% by the Foundation Andrew Grene and 50% by the Haitian Government.

In addition, President Martelly committed to sponsor, along with Digicel, the student Aїs Strudley Rose Lundjie (15 years) who presented a paper she wrote about the importance of quality education in the country. he Head of State has decided to accompany her to stimulate other young people to covet excellence.
