From me to PNG is a hearty not-for-profit organisation, our mission is to build and improve school libraries in the villages of Papua New Guinea, for children living in poverty.
Why? Because we believe all children, no matter where they come from DESERVE equal educational opportunities, giving them the chance to discover their interests, talents and passions, so they are able to firstly, realize their dreams, then chase them with the new-found opportunities. And we want to be there every step of the way.
Recently, we received an email from Joan, Joan lives in ‘Good Enough Island’, which is located east off the Mainland of PNG, in Milne Bay Province. Due to being so remote, they have nothing. The school libraries have little books which are mainly out-dated and ruined. We have made getting a container to them our next project. Although, we need help. We will receive zero funding due to the location of Good Enough Island. So in order to get a container there, we need to fundraise. In a bid to receive donations, I, Samantha O’Connell, Co-founder of From me to PNG will be running the Auckland 1/2 Marathon, WITH a bag full of books.
So, if you think I have what it takes or you want to help From me to PNG regardless, get behind – Getting Good Enough Books to Good Enough Island. And be part of allowing children the chance to gain an education and prosper, no matter where they come from.
Money raised will go towards the shipment of the container to the remote island.
Additional costs in building the school library.
Once you donate, you get to have your name, along with a personal message (or just your name, if you’d prefer) written on the library wall!
