PUMA Energy, continues to energise communities around the country through its Community Social Responsibility partners such as Buk bilong Pikinini (BbP).
Today, we announce the renewal of our sponsorship contract with BbP.
PUMA Energy’s Country General Manager Hulala Tokome said: “It is pleasing to see the smiles on the children’s faces during the signing, because vulnerable children have been the centre and the reason behind BbP, developing programs to cover Early Childhood Education, Library services, school library re-establishment and book publishing.”
PUMA Energy will continue to supply fuel and lubricants for BbP to distribute books to children’s libraries established around the country. CGM Hulala Tokome took the time to read a book to the children and explain where petrol comes from to the 5-year-olds who witnessed the MoU signing. He said: “It is vital to use every opportunity to teach the children what companies such as Puma does to support communities in Papua New Guinea”.
BbP Executive Officer Leanne Resson said BbP is grateful for the support they receive from donors such as PUMA Energy, which enables the organisation to provide the most children in PNG with an opportunity to become literate and to change their lives for the better.
“All children deserve the right to learn to read and write and we are privileged to work with PUMA Energy, which gives back to the communities where they operate,” she said. “We greatly value Puma Energy’s continued support over the years which has helped us to distribute much needed supply of our School Library Kits to communities. True in every sense of energising communities through Education”, she added.
PUMA Energy thanked Buk bilong Pikinini for providing learning opportunities for the most vulnerable children in society who miss out on formal education, which is a part of our 5 pillars of Community Social Responsibility in the country which cover: Road Safety Awareness, Environment and Conservation, Education, License to Trade Imperative and Emergency First Response.
