Constructing a school in rural Papua New Guinea

Constructing a school in rural Papua New Guinea

Summary

We need to fund the construction of Kobo Primary School to enable the children of Kobo and Wainsoduna Village to receive an education. The funding that was promised to the project has not come through, so we're trying to raise money to improve one of the least developed areas in the Morobe province and give the residents the quality of life that they deserve.

Challenge

The construction of the school was identified by community members who were concerned about how the only way children from Kobo and Wainsoduna could access education was to travel 500 meters to Toyare Primary School in Sapa and Eu Primary School in Sowara. Walking to Sapa or Sowara is often difficult for the community's children, due to the frequent bad weather and the Waria River, which can be very dangerous to cross. Education is not a government priority in Kobo so most children stay at home.

Solution

A school in Kobo will enable local children, who should be entitled to an education, to learn new skills in a safe environment; women will be empowered by training opportunities; and the entire community by improving their quality of living through education.

Long-Term Impact

Access to basic education is a proven benchmark for improving most of the problems facing the community. Women and youth in Kobo Village, with few skills and knowledge, struggle to improve their livelihoods due to no formal education so the construction of the school will change lives in Kobo for the better.
