 A group of teachers and librarians in Lae have taken a special interest in sharing books with remote schools in Morobe and promote reading among children.

“The team’s main objective is to set up library for under privileged children in the remote village elementary schools and to promote read for life,” Joyce Orere, who is driving the initiative, said.

Orere, a teacher at the International School of Lae, started the Remote Volunteer Elementary Library Services last year.

The first project library was opened in April at the Yakabong Elementary School at DZeng DZeng village in Boana district. 

The community was thankful that this volunteer group have helped them set this library for their children. 

Orere was concerned that there was a big gap in the elementary school system and that the basics of books and reading were missing.
