WHILE intending candidates for the 2017 national elections compete head to head to claim leadership for the next five years, one school on the outskirts of Musa in the Ijivitari area of Oro Province is in dire need of teaching and reading materials for its students.
This school is currently run by two headmasters and an auxiliary teacher and serves children from neighboring villages.
It has been 42 years now since Papua New Guinea gained its independence in 1975 but Musa is still how it was in colonial days.
The people are without proper infrastructure, they lack basic and quality health and education services and are without any exposure to development or modernisation.
Having said that, I would like to make an appeal for donations of reading books for the school.
Your donations would go a long way for the 20–40 students at this remote school and will be highly appreciated.
Please contact me on email firstname.lastname@example.org to make a donation today.
