A message from Caroline today:

"Just letting you know that the books arrived.

I am currently brainstorming on how to get the books into the school.

I will continue to keep you updated."

These books were purchased and dispatched using some of the royalties from the sales of the 'My Walk to Equality' anthology.

Many thanks to the writers who contributed to the anthology.

I will definitely posts updates about this project, Phil

That might make up an interesting mix Caroline. Some basic generic kid's books with a sprinkling of Papua New Guinean literature.

Please keep us informed about this project.

Will books delivery come soon enough that, along with PNG Government paying for helicoptering electoral candidates (alleged by Rt Hon Sir Mekere Morauta 21/6/2017), a grander gesture could be delivered as a worthy ‘turn up’ and ‘turn about’ for trumpeting hope in education, IF, donated books for Safia school also came delivered by helicopter? Put it to Peter, David?

Afterall, donation is a helicoptering of sorts, albeit in defiance of edict prohibiting income of local cash.

Thanks so much Phil for your generosity. Buk Bilong Pikini has pledged to donate 300 books to the school as well.

Many returns will come you way.

Twenty one books, in two consignments, dispatched to Caroline today for delivery to the school.

A note to the thieves in the post office and freight company - if you steal these books you are robbing kids in a remote area trying to get an education.

Total cost K468.53.

If anyone else wants to make a further contribution (Peter O'Neill?) please go for it.

If you give me an address I will send a set of Pukpuk Publications books to the school Caroline.

Maybe if you check out our website you can tell me which ones would be appropriate.

A residential or business address would be best, consignments to post office boxes tend to go missing.
