Firm supports literacy programme


CREDIT Corporation continues to support the Buk bilong Pikinini programme to improve literacy levels for disadvantaged children in Papua New Guinea, an official says.
Buk bilong Pikinini executive officer Leanne Resson said this after Credit Corp announced a K20,000 yearly sponsorship for three years in Port Moresby on Thursday.
She said Credit Corp had supported the programme with storage facilities (shipping containers) to keep books and learning resources since 2017.
Resson said through the support of business houses and stakeholders, the non-government organisation was able to roll out its programme over the years.
She said Buk bilong Pikinini focused on early childhood education, literacy and awareness through its 11 libraries in the country.
Credit Corporation chief operating officer Danny Robinson said the K20,000 committed this year reinforced the relationship between the two organisations.
“We are making a commitment of K20,000 each year for next three years,” he said.
