The location of our Koki Market library was a fortuitous one, in that we inherited a former community library building which was very run down and unused and located at the centre of the markets. Thereafter, with the generous help of Curtain Brothers who carried out an extensive renovation, the building was restored and Buk bilong Pikinini re-opened the newly refurbished Koki Markets Community Library in November 2011. From 2011-2017 the Library Learning Centre was sponsored through PNG LNG / ExxonMobil.
Deloitte supported BbP through their World Impact program in 2018- 2019 with the running costs for the Library Learning Centre and the donation of School Library kits to surrounding schools.
Children enrolled at the Koki Markets Library Learning Centre got busy in 2020 painting green clouds to celebrate the fact that their centre will continue to operate thanks to new sponsorship from Green Cloud Consulting.
The LLC based at the Koki Markets has been in need of a long-term donor to avoid closure, so Buk bilong Pikinini (BbP) is grateful to be able to welcome Green Cloud Consulting to the family of donor partners.
Green Cloud Consulting has been operating in Papua New Guinea since their inception in 2014. Their primary service is providing consulting services for users of TechnologyOne enterprise resource planning software across both the public and private sector. They work with clients across financial management, payroll, budgeting, and purchasing systems to help enable strong financial governance within those organisations that serve all of us.
Tim Green, Director at Green Cloud Consulting said: “We are extremely proud to join the Buk bilong Pikinini partnership family. We believe education is the foundation of success and our partnership with Buk bilong Pikinini is intended to provide the opportunity to the children of Koki to realise their potential.”
Anne-Sophie Hermann, BbP Founder and Chairperson said:
“BbP welcomes Green Cloud Consulting to our family and are looking forward to a great partnership. Thanks to the support from companies like Green Cloud Consulting we are able to have a transformative impact on the lives of the thousands of children in our programs, ensuring that they are given the opportunity to achieve literacy and be able to contribute to the communities in which they live.”
Leanne Resson, BbP Executive Officer said: “We are grateful for the support from Green Cloud Consulting and are looking forward to assisting the hundreds of children enrolled at our Koki Markets LLC with a comprehensive early childhood development program, giving them the best educational foundation skills before starting school.”
