Buk bilong Pikinini welcomed our patron for 2012, Hon. Richard Marles - Shadow Minister for Immigration and Border Protection to our Six Mile library in Port Moresby on Wednesday the 29th of April.

The visit was opportunity for the Shadow Minister to witness the progress Buk bilong Pikinini has made since 2012 to create valuable learning opportunities for PNG’s most vulnerable children. The Shadow Minister took turns with 5 year old Bodger to read a story to the children and families coming to our Six Mile library.

Hon. Richard Marles said: “It is wonderful to be back here and learn first-hand about the terrific opportunities Buk bilong Pikinini is giving children and also adults in PNG. This program is very dear to my heart and I am so pleased it has given so many in PNG the chance to become literate and enjoy reading.”
