VILLAGE CLASSROOM DONATIONS
Schools and businesses around Australia kindly donate classroom desks, chairs, office furnishing and learning resources. These are stored at Storage King Perth Airport for free, waiting till there is enough goods to completely fill a 20ft shipping container. These are then shipped from Fremantle to Wewak, East Sepik Province PNG. Then distributed by canoe and small boats to the remote river village schools.

Changes start with educated children.
We work alongside local villages to provide school educational resources for their children in order to benefit their learning opportunities. Our focus is on helping primary school children early in life, as long term education empowers a person to improve their socioeconomic conditions for their families, villages and future generations.
Supporting gender equality is necessary, where girls are encouraged to complete their education in order to succeed and make the best life choices which are the most realistic for them.
Providing women and girls with equal access to education, health care, decent work, and representation in political and economic decision-making processes will fuel sustainable economies and benefit societies and humanity at large. Equal gender is a fundamental human right.
