The Bakovi Kabu Development Association held a meeting yesterday to discuss their education awareness program that will eventuate in the Talasia district of West New Britain province.
The awareness program is set to begin next week Monday and continue for a week and will be targeting the youths and children that have not secured a space in the universities and colleges.
Vice President of the Association Mr. Michael Reu Junior, confirmed that two teams have been allocated five wards each to visit and talk to the young people.
“This association is a mixed group and it is comprised of students, youths and working class of the Bakovi tribe in West New Britain,” said the president.
Mr. Reu stated, their main focus is to encourage and give hope to the children that were not able to further their studies because of the education system that did not allow them.
“We would like to motivate the youths and children that there are other options or institutions like FODE, ITI, Mapex and UPNG Open college that they can go through and achieve their dreams”.
“There is a list of names we have collected and we’re going to send their documents next week to institutions that they would want to study or upgrade their marks”.
Meanwhile, part of the awareness will cover law and order topics, which they see is a need as well in the communities of the Talasia District.
“We did not receive support from the provincial government or any organization, the association has been doing five major fundraisings and with capital we have, we are hoping and looking forward to successfully roll out this project”.
