IT'S amazing what can happen when you least expect it. From a simple word at the right time.
This year in Pittsworth, Queensland, Rotarians Aub Schulstad and Trevor Shields got talking about providing help for an 89-year old disabled gentleman who retired to the Pittsworth area after living in Papua New Guinea for over 40 years.
When Trevor Shields heard the words 'Papua New Guinea' he thought of a major book project his club was about to undertake for PNG.
The request for help from Pittsworth Rotary came from Angela Sowai Gizoria from the village of Pes in PNG.
Angela wanted to establish a library in a bush primary school near Aitape in Sandaun Province. She was hoping to fulfill a lifelong dream by establishing the library to service 500 students from nine villages.
