Buk bilong Pikinini is grateful to HeliScope PNG for signing an agreement with us to deliver books across Papua New Guinea. We will now be able to get new books and literacy materials out to our regional libraries which has so far been quite a challenge.

This agreement, which was signed last week by Giles Rooney (pictured above left), CEO of HeliScope, will also enable Buk bilong Pikinini to do book donations to remote communities which we would not normally be able to reach. One such lucky community is at Malalaua close to Kerema in Gulf Province, where HeliScope is currently working to assist with the construction of telecommunications towers. Gulf province has some of the highest illiteracy levels in PNG and both the local pre-school and primary school will receive boxes of books which will be a much needed boost for the children's learning.

CEO Giles Rooney said: "We are very happy to be supporting Buk Bilong Pikinini. These boxes of books travel a long way and pass through a lot of hands before they reach the schools, we are very fortunate to be at the end of the line and see the children receive them. Its a very rewarding and worthwhile cause."

HeliScope PNG specialises in low-level aerial work, heavy lift operations, telecommunications tower construction, seismic support services, oil and gas exploration, mining and surveying support, aeromedical search and rescue, passenger transport and VIP Charter. http://heliscope.net
