LiteHaus pledges to help students, teachers


LITEHAUS International Papua New Guinea has pledged to help students and teachers in Western Highlands with their fees or accommodation if they qualify for further studies in Australia.
Country director Cr Peter Raim said LiteHaus would cater for the fees or accommodation for students or teachers.
“Schools that will benefit from this pledge are those that have been receiving computers from LiteHaus,” he said.
“We have been donating free computers and providing internet to more than 30 primary schools in Western Highlands to promote quality learning and education.
“Apart from that, we also give a laptop to the best computer student at the end of the year as an academic prize.”
Raim made this pledge at the presentation of 19 desktop computers, a television and internet service connection to the Koge Namba Primary School in Mt Hagen last Tuesday.
He said any student or teacher pursuing further studies through scholarship programmes in Australia should let his office know so that arrangements could be made for LiteHaus to extend its support.
“Our efforts are to promote the education sector in PNG,” he said.
“You need to make use of our support to make education your number one priority in life.”
Raim, who is the ward councillor of the Kopi tribe in Mt Hagen, said students from Koge Namba were part of those schools that would benefit from LiteHaus’ support.
He said today, the world was competitive because of computers and students were privileged to receive such gifts. “These computers you see have been delivered to schools for free with the biggest support from the Sir Brian Bell Foundation,” he said.
School head teacher Rex Basanue said education was the key for all countries and LiteHaus was contributing significantly to Western Highlands students.
“Promoting quality learning through computers will help produce quality human resources and capital for the country.”
