BUK BILONG PIKININI TO EXTEND ITS FOOTPRINTS

By Lohia KILINA : PNGFM

Buk Bilong Pikinini is looking to extend its footprints further into the rural parts of Papua New Guinea including in East New Britain, Hela and Southern Highlands Provinces’ in 2018.

Executive Officer Henry Ume said their main aim is to address the low literacy rates in the country and books play a vital role in this regard.

Mr Ume said with close to 20 Buk Bilong Pikinini Libraries and Learning centres so far, scattered across the country, he hopes that more children will find books easily accessible.

Meanwhile, Buk Bilong Pikinini’s Early Childhood Learning Centres will be open for enrolment for 2018 by 8th January (next week) when the staff and volunteers resume normal duties.

Currently, there are about 16 Early Childhood Learning Centres managed by BbP and the others are supported by partner organisations.

It is hoped that this year they will receive more support than last year when due to financial challenges some partners reduced or withdrew their funding support.
