We are an international nonprofit organization that raises funds to support our vision of creating self sustaining green schools that creates a cycle of education, trades, and farming in developing communities. The vision of Green Schools goes beyond the brick and mortar of the classroom – we believe that survival in the new green economy is the way of the future. Our school’s design structure will be built on green technology that students will apply and expand their knowledge of it by learning trades that will give them a clear path, and open their horizon going forward. The first school will be constructed in Haiti, with a goal completion date of 2019.
Green Schools for a Green Future is a new initiative of Nikobel Solutions – an Environmental & Interpersonal Consulting Services firm. Even with the best intent, this vision cannot become reality without the support of our wonderful Green Partners and Sponsors. We cannot create change that we want to see in the world without your help and contributions.

Introduce a new, progressive and green education system in developing communities that directly connects students to sustainable tools and applications to create a “New Normal” and produce a new generation of Green Leaders to advance their communities in the new green economy.
To provide sustainable education for a sustainable future.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
– ‘Nelson Mandela’
We believe that to create a green and sustainable future, we must start at the level of education. Green Schools for a Green Future aims to create schools that:
Are sustainable, environmentally responsible and self sufficient
Offers students and their parents the opportunity to learn about green trades and technology
Empower students within their own communities
Serve the most underprivileged and provide them with a path to a brighter future
We plan to accomplish this mission by building schools using green technologies such as solar panels, water filtration systems, sustainable construction materials, aquaculture, and aquaponic farms.
The benefits of including green technology include:
Hands-on experience with aquaponic food and fish production, maintaining solar panels and water filtration systems
The experience can help students transition into a green career after graduation
Food grown in the aquaculture and fish grown in the aquaponic farm will be a source of healthy food for the students and their families
Surplus food and electricity can be sold to generate income for the school and a career opportunity

As we know it takes a village to bring any projects together and we have a good start!
This is why Green Schools Green Future means everything to me!
Very exciting to be on board for GSGF as we open up sustainable schools and trades that encourages new education, farming, power grids, wind energy, climate change, etc. to mention just a few. This is our new future with many partners globally working together to create green schools worldwide.
I’ve believed in GSGF’s mission to establish self sustaining green schools in developing communities around the world, since I was introduced to the project.
Serving on the IT side of the project, I hope that my skill sets can contribute to the development and growth of our vision.
For me the Green Schools Green Future project is about change. Change in how education is delivered in developing communities. Change in how these communities can thrive and move forward in the new green economy. Change in how future leaders are created.
It is exciting to be part of this change process.
As someone who believes that everyone should have some environmental education in order to protect the earth, I have always wanted to be a part of a project involving educating the future generations. Today being a part of the GSGF project, I have the opportunity to educate the young generation of my country Haiti and abroad, while learning so much myself.
