Volunteering is a wonderful and exciting experience. You can volunteer with Buk bilong Pikinini through an international organisation such as VSO or AusAID or, if you are already in Port Moresby, with our Buk bilong Pikinini Committee. Luke Ebbs, seen above, was an AVID and is now the Executive Officer at our Head Office in Port Moresby. Dabrina Issakhany, above right, was an AYAD in the role of Literacy and Community Development Officer in the beautiful Alotau in Milne Bay Province.
Below are pictures of Hannah Anderson and Camilla Bullen, AYADs in the role of Literacy and Community Development Officer in Goroka in the Highlands of PNG and Alotau.
