ExxonMobil PNG and LiteHaus International have partnered to connect young Papua New Guineans through digital learning in schools across PNG LNG Project areas.
Following the successful rollout of the program in Hela Province, digital support will be provided to 18 schools in Central Province.
In officially announcing the partnership at Papa Junior High School, Justin Cloutier, ExxonMobil PNG’s LNG Plant Asset Manager, said the partnership with LiteHaus International has enabled many schools to receive computers.
“In three short years since we partnered with LiteHaus International, we’ve supported the digital learning needs for more than 13,000 students and teachers in Hela Province.
“This is important because we want to see more young, bright, and hardworking students from across the project impact areas come and work at the PNG LNG Project after graduating from university or college. That is our dream,” he concluded.
Jack Growden, LiteHaus International Founder and Chief Executive Officer said the partnership with ExxonMobil PNG has made education accessible.
“The profound support LiteHaus International has received from ExxonMobil PNG has enabled us to reach more remote parts of the country.
“A quality education can only be a digital education in today’s world. LiteHaus International is on a mission to ensure that every school in the country can offer a quality digital learning experience to its students,” he said.
ExxonMobil PNG’s ongoing investment to education across schools neighbouring the PNG LNG Plant site, has also included the construction of staff houses and double classrooms, along with the provision of white and brown goods.
