Buk bilong Pikinini (BbP) has today received the donation of a Konica Minolta Bizhub printer from Remington Technology.
In order to provide children enrolled at BbP’s Early Childhood Education Library Learning Centres, with the opportunity to learn to read and write, the organisation has a daily need for printing in high volumes.
The children start the year with colouring-in, tracing and gradually progress to writing, getting to know their numbers and engaging is lots of different craft activities to stimulate their learning.
Remington Technology GM, Justin Kieseker said; “Remington Technology is known for supporting education and the development of our children in PNG.
We are extremely pleased to support Buk Bilong Pikinini with their early learning literacy programs as we believe early learning programs such as this should be available to all young children in the country.
If Remington providing a multifunction device enables more young children to access reading and writing materials, then we have contributed to giving them the best start to their learning journey, that is our small way of giving back to the community”.
The printer is valued at K5000 and also comes with K5000 worth of printing.
Leanne Resson, BbP Executive Officer said: “BbP is grateful for this special gift just in time for Literacy Week.
Thanks to the sponsorship, PNG children are able to focus on their learning and have the materials required to support their budding literacy.”
Anne-Sophie Hermman, BbP Founder and Chairperson said: “As BbP is celebrating our 15th anniversary milestone this year, we are excited to welcome new partners to our family of sponsors.
Thanks to this support, we are looking forward to continuing to support more children with an opportunity to become literate. If you can read, you can learn anything.”
