On International Literacy Day, 8th September, Pari Elementary School opened the doors of its brand-new Library Learning Centre, thanks to a major funding programme by Steamships Trading Company.

Steamships has been supporting the delivery of Buk bilong Pikinini's early childhood literacy and development programmes in Port Moresby, Lae and Goroka since 2009 and is a platinum corporate sponsor of the charity. In a year that has seen major disruption in many people's lives, including children's learning, Steamships decided to make a major investment in the children of Port Moresby's Motu Koitabu villages through a two-million-Kina commitment over the next five years to support educational programmes that prepare young children for school. Four more Library Learning Centres, housing collections of books and other educational materials, will be built over the next three years through a partnership with the National Capital District Commission, which will support the construction of the centres, endorsed by the Motu Koita Assembly and its Chairman, Hon. Dadi Toka. The new Library Learning Centre at Pari village was the first to be opened.
