An official handover ceremony was held at the school where representatives from EastWest Transport, alongside partners from the Rotary Club and Soroptimist International, presented the desks and chairs to the school’s Head Teacher, Ms. Irene Gaudi.

“On behalf of the entire Baruni Primary School community, I want to express our deepest gratitude to EastWest Transport, the Rotary Club, and Soroptimist International for this donation,” said Ms. Gaudi. “Desks and chairs are often a significant expense for schools in Papua New Guinea, and this generous contribution will make a world of difference for our students.”

The desks were made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Rotary Club and City Mission’s carpentry program in Port Moresby, who constructed the desks using locally sourced materials.

“EastWest Transport is committed to supporting the surrounding communities in which it operates,” said Nicholas Bury, Commercial General Manager, Steamships Logistics.

“Baruni village is home to many of our valued employees, and we recognized a critical need to support the local school. This donation of desks and chairs will contribute to enhancing the learning experience for students and create a more comfortable and conducive learning environment, allowing students in Baruni to thrive and reach their full potential.”
