Scholarships in Wabumari

A good education can transform lives. Yet, around half of Papua New Guinea’s children don’t go to school. And, 60 percent of those that do, do not complete the education cycle.

A lack of education leaves local people vulnerable to exploitation in many different ways, so our partner communities are making children’s schooling a top priority.

For the children of Wabumari, funding from Cool Earth means less time working and more time to focus on the things that really matter – like getting an education.

Even if children make the grade, issues like transport costs, food and school materials stand in the way of their progress. That’s why the Wabumari Association has awarded Silo Silo primary school K3200 (the equivalent of £750) to assist 16 students into further education.

Emma Daniada

Emma Daniada attends secondary school on the North coast of Papua New Guinea. The journey consists of a four- hour truck ride followed by another two hours by dinghy. Funding from the community means she can buy toiletries, school clothes and food – essentials that remote communities can rarely afford.

Education can transform the future of a child, a family, and a community. No matter where our partners are in the world, the schooling of their children is a priority for us here at Cool Earth. Through supplying families with back-to-school equipment and helping them to fund the school trips, to building classrooms and, in Emma’s case, funding scholarships for further education, we believe education is a priority.

We’re proud that our rainforest partners are putting education at the top of the curriculum.
