E-library for Kairuku School

By Jack Lapauve Jr, EMTV – Port Moresby

 

The Together for Education Project, funded by the Australian Government recently launched an e-library application at three elementary schools in Central Province.

The e-library application is a new initiative of ‘Library for All’ and aims to support early learning literacy and improve reading skills at the elementary school level.

Library for All is a non-profit organization that supports communities to access affordable education materials.

During the launch, students were shown how to access a variety of reading materials and participated in a parent-child practice reading session.

Parents and teachers of the three schools said the e-library application would motivate their children to read more, improve their literacy level and their attendance to school.

“We’ve been working on this pilot project for almost a year and it’s good to finally see it being launched; it is also encouraging to see parents reading with their children,” said Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Library for All, Rebecca McDonald.

The Together for Education Project is supported by the Australian Government in partnership with the Government of Papua New Guinea and supports the National Education Plan 2015-2019.

World Vision and its partners Child Fund, Consultative Implementation and Monitoring Council, Library for All, and the University of Canberra are working together with schools, communities, provinces and other stakeholders to achieve inclusive quality education.
