Most children in Papua New Guinea do not have access to books and libraries to support their education. Learning to read at an early age will help develop memory, vocabulary and improve long-term educational outcomes. Supporting a child's love for reading is one of the best things you can do for them.
Buk bilong Pikinini has created a highly efficient Early Childhood Literacy program to provide children with the opportunity to become literate and school ready within one year.
There is a huge demand for our ECL program but we need your help to sponsor children from vulnerable communities and give them a chance to break the cycle of poverty that they and their families currently find themselves in.
For just $350 or PNGK 900 you can sponsor a girl or a boy and give them the special gift of attending Buk bilong Pikinini's highly efficient Early Childhood Literacy program for one year! This includes our Monday to Friday Early Childhood Literacy program, access to book loans and special educational awareness events. The program provides the children with full support for optimal school readiness.
In return for your generous support, Buk bilong Pikinini will send you a Certificate of Appreciation with the name, age and library the sponsored child is attending. We will also do a Facebook post to thank you or your company for this special gift.
You can donate via our website: http://www.bukbilongpikinini.org/index.php/helping/donations through our partner Global Development Group who will issue you with a Tax deductible receipt or via a direct deposit to our Australian bank account. All the information is on our donations page.
Give the gift of literacy today!
