Our second partnership library with World Vision

On Wednesday the 8th of October Buk bilong Pikinini opened a second library in partnership with World Vision. The library is located at a large community settlement at 8 Mile outside Port Moresby. Oro village is within the ATS community which stands for Air Transport Squadron Community, because the community is located just next to the ATS Barracks.

The ATS settlement traditionally houses Orokivas from Popondetta and Oro Province which is clearly visible in the children's tapa cloth attires. However, since early 2000 people from Milne Bay have moved into the settlement as well. Many of the people living at ATS are unemployed and in serious financial hardship which means that many children are not enrolled at school.
