Makata donates library books to schools, communities, and churches
The Dibor community within the GILDIPASI region in the north coast of Madang in Papua New Guinea (PNG) have been one of the few communities within our turtles protection and restoration sites who have recently benefited from cartons of library books donated to them by Cathy Edmund's family, friends and the reading club of the Port Moresby International School also in PNG. Efforts towards improving literacy level at the community level is of paramount importance for our indigenous people. With increased literacy level they can be educated, empowered, enlightened and take on pro-active roles in managing their resources sustainably to improve their livelihood.
We continue to supply library books not only to schools, communities within the project sites but to those in need. In 2011 we donated 20 cartons of books to Karkum village, one of the communities that has established its marine protected areas to protect the critically endangered leatherback turtles and another 20 cartons of books to Saint John's Parish at Tokara in Port Moresby, thanks to donations received from the World Bank.
Should you be interested in donating library books to our schools,communities, churches or any vulnerable groups of people within the society, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on +(675) 71959665. We remain committed to be the vehicle to serve those in need in the rural and urban areas that still needed social and environmental justice.
