Buk bilong Pikinini libraries were initially established thanks to the work carried out by the Buk bilong Pikinini committee and founders.
However, Buk bilong Pikinini has had a Head Office in Port Moresby since 2009 and an Australia Office in Canberra since 2010. Thanks to the hard work of the volunteers in the committee since 2007 Buk bilong Pikinini has been able to carry the workload involved behind the scenes to establish many libraries across PNG.
The committee has now become a Friends of Buk bilong Pikinini group of volunteers and offers opportunities for expatriates, who might be spending a few years in PNG, to be involved in supporting the local community. The Friends of Buk bilong Pikinini group is usually busy organising fundraising events (Teddy Bear Picnics, raffles), carry out book sorting and also go to the libraries to do reading, crafts and special activities with the children. If you would like to be a Friend of Buk bilong Pikinini and take part in the fun activities while doing something truly meaningful please call our Head Office on 340 88 27.
