Sir David Harrison’s £4 Million Gift Unveils Cutting-Edge Harrison Center in Antigua


The Harrison Center, a generous gift from the Harrison’s Foundation, was officially inaugurated on Thursday, drawing a crowd of hundreds of residents eager to witness this momentous occasion.

Serving as the Antigua and Barbuda Institute for Continuing Education (ABICE), the Harrison Center stands as a beacon of ongoing educational opportunities for the region.

This state-of-the-art facility promises to become the envy of many, while simultaneously serving as an educational cornerstone, fostering skills development in the area.

Designed to offer various workshops catering to the vocational and technical education preferences of young individuals, the newly constructed center is poised to make a profound impact.

This substantial investment underscores the government’s unwavering commitment to delivering accessible, high-quality technical and vocational education, ultimately empowering individuals, enhancing lives, and catalyzing economic growth.

Sir David Harrison, who generously contributed £4 million to this project, lauded the government for its determination in overcoming challenges and bringing this vision to fruition.

Education Minister Daryll Matthew emphasized the government’s dedication to poverty reduction in Antigua and Barbuda, with the Harrison Center set to play a pivotal role in this endeavor.

Prime Minister Gaston Browne highlighted the need for skilled labor in various sectors and the hope that the Harrison Center would bridge this gap, reducing the reliance on importing talent.

  1. Thanks to Sir David for this generous gift, and may all Antiguans take full advantage of the increased opportunities for skill development and advancement.

  2. Don’t forget the government of Antigua and Barbuda also put in quite a lot of money in this project. But why would ANR mention that, when even Mr. Harrison mentioned that in his speech. Anyway. Much appreciated Mr. Harrison for your generous gift to the people of this nation. I hope many more billionaires that have made Antigua their home take some of their wealth and help us to develop the Island. It’s not about giving bribe. But tangible development straight to the project. That is the most they can do for the Island they have made their home. And especially for Americans, charitable contributions are tax deductible. So in fact it is the tax payers’ money. Give graciously and make the Island prosperous and take it to a higher standard.

  3. You know what I like about Gaston Browne. When he goes to Jumby Bay to beg the rich for money. he doesn’t do this to enrich himself. It is always in the interest of the country and the people of Antigua and Barbuda. Look at the Sir Novel Richard Academy. All begged funds from the rich living at Jumby Bay. Well PM since you are so good in begging continue going there to beg for us. Perhaps they can build us a new Clare Vue Hospital. And a new Fiennes Institute. There are many areas where the government need help in improving the country’s health infrastructure.
