As part of our commitment to supporting the communities where we operate through the transfer of skills and knowledge, Paladin has been supporting various education initiatives. Informed by our experience and research in Manus Province, Paladin recognise the sparsity of educational resources available to children in PNG. Paladin’s latest contribution in this area involves the supply of uniforms to the extremely hardworking and dedicated staff of Buk bilong Pikinini.
Buk bilong Pikinini is an independent charity headquartered in Port Moresby but with operations throughout PNG. It aims to foster a life-long love of reading and learning, increase literacy rates and empower vulnerable children. Buk bilong Pikinini aims to do this via the establishment of children’s libraries in target communities across PNG, the delivery of literacy programs through these libraries, and by providing books and literacy materials to schools who need them most.
Paladin is proud to support Buk bilong Pikinini and its admirable mission to provide learning opportunities to PNG children, especially the most vulnerable and disadvantaged ones in PNG society.
