DONATE GOODS FOR VILLAGE SCHOOLS
Please donate furnishings, goods, and books to our charity.
HEAPS Australia has received regular donations of second-hand office furnishings from Lavan Legal Perth, stationary from Eclips DXC Technology, school equipment from All Saints College Perth, St Aloysius College Melbourne, and St Michael’s School Bassendean. These are stored for free at Storage King, Perth Airport.
Swire Shipping liner service operated by the China Navigation Company Pte Ltd (CNCo)) has formed a long-term working partnership with HEAPS where they regularly assist with sea freight from Australia to Papua New Guinea. Without their wonderful support, this project would not have been possible.
Schools’ activities such as this could be considered to be welfare, yet! these benefits have helped to break the cycle of poverty. Currently, there are 19 marginalized schools better equipped with an improved learning environment and more enthused students. This project necessitates local school involvement from ordering to providing local transportation and labor for collection. Isolated schools have been able to re-open and the PNG Education Department has provided them with teachers. Some village schools have expanded their student numbers through building bush classrooms to accommodate the increased numbers of donated desks, chairs and blackboards.
There are another 14 isolate remote areas schools in the Angoram District of the East Sepik Province who we have identified as being suitable to receive our Australian school donation support for 2021.
We are very grateful for all of the ongoing support we receive.
The Digicel Foundation PNG with HEAPS and Sio locals support, constructed two sturdy classrooms with solar power, two pit toilets and rain tank for drinking water.
Please contact HEAPS Australia if you are able to provide goods for elementary and primary level school.
