Effective conservation cannot take place without a good education
Supporting education is crucial to ensure that local communities feel that they can continue to protect and preserve their forest.
In Sololo, Papua New Guinea, access to an education benefits the whole community. That’s why Cool Earth has funded an adult literacy programme, delivered by local partner organisation Community Service Consultancy.
Fourteen students have now celebrated their graduation having passed exams in basic numeracy and literacy. By creating opportunities in skill development, these students are now able to access further training and education. Essential in helping more people are able earn a reliable, sustainable, income, protect their forest and form links locally.
Mr. Kingsley Aresapa is an elderly man who is also current serving Missionary of Anglican Church in Sololo Village. He is attending the adult literacy class. This is what is said:
“Attending this adult literacy class is helping me to improve my reading, writing and counting skills. I really like the class. It is helping my work as a missionary. In the last two weeks what is really exciting to me is learning about the alphabet, blending of sounds to create words, counting of numbers and I also learnt about addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. When I successfully complete the adult literacy class, I would like to become an early childhood teacher back in my community. This is the greatest need of the people in this community and I wanted to help them.”
