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, your support 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 community association has awarded Silo Silo primary school money to assist 16 students into further education.
