Buk Bilong Pikinini Library has appreciated Express Freight management’s support over the last nine years to delivering books.
At Koki Buk Bilong Pikinini library yesterday, the children thanked EFM representatives, customs manager Manuel Bulatau and administration manager Mathilda Igua.
Buk Bilong Pikinini executive officer Lucinda Gulluman Kisip said the company delivered more than 500,000 books to date.
Buk Bilong Pikinini targets the vulnerable and disadvantaged children in the community,” Kisip said.
She said the disadvantaged children would otherwise not have had the opportunity so it’s important to target them.
“If their parents are not working, they would not be able to start a good early education for them, so we targeted this group so that we are also advocating about education and encouraging, particularly girls, to start education at the age of five,” Kisip said.
She said it had been an incredible journey and without the support of corporate sponsors and the PNG society, they wouldn’t be able to do what they were doing.
Kisip said they have 17 libraries – 10 in Port Moresby, two in Goroka, two in Alotau, two in Lae and one at Manus.
Bulatau congratulated Buk Bilong Pikinini for coming this far and assured them support.
“It’s very important for the children to have access to books at an early stage so that it complemented them in their playing and studying,” Bulatau said.
