Programme gets K50,000 for literacy

Youth & Careers

THEODIST has donated K50,000 to Buk bilong Pikinini (BbP) to assist its work in promoting literacy and providing quality reading books to children.
The donation is part of the company’s gold sponsor commitment. It has a BbP reading corner and a book shop that assists BbP’s sustainability through sale of excess stock.
Theodist also supports BbP with discounts and a shop donation bin.
The support has been continuing for four years because Theodist believes that it contributes to combatting illiteracy in PNG.
Also as part of the sponsorship, Theodist celebrated World Book Day with BbP last Tuesday by launching its new book Our Special Stories.
The book features the stories of 10 children living with disability in PNG. It has printed 10,000 copies and BbP is encouraging schools to get their free copies.
It is also a testament to the beauty of PNG with stunning photography provided by photographers Vanessa Kerton and Roan Paul.
