• Welcome

  • Literacy

    The purpose of Buk bilong Pikinini is to focus on early childhood learning as a key to literacy. Only half of school-age children go to school and the literacy rate in PNG is well under the 50% officially recorded - in some areas it can be as low as 5%.
  • Libraries

    Buk bilong Pikinini has established 16 children's libraries across Papua New Guinea. We continue to strive to educate as many vulnerable children as possible.
  • Giving hope

    “Buk bilong Pikinini brings hope. It allows our young children from disadvantaged backgrounds to dream beyond their circumstances and be children. It gives them the greatest possible head start to perform well in school.” - Mrs Lynda Babao O’Neill, Buk bilong Pikinini Ambassador
