Adult Literacy Programs
In 2019, Papua LNG signed an MOU with the National Volunteer Services (NVS) under the Community Investment program for the Adult Literacy Training of eight (8) communities within the PRL-15 area of Gulf Province. Twelve (12) community volunteers were identified and trained to become tutors. The tutors then returned to their respective communities and taught adult literacy and basic numeracy trainings. One hundred and eight-five (185) adults and youths are currently undergoing the levels 1 to 5 training.
Based on its success, the Adult Literacy Training Program is extended every year for more adults to have access to literacy. By the end of the training program, the adults and youths will confidently be able to read, write and do basic numeracy.
Donation of books
In 2017, Papua LNG donated 500 resource books for teachers in primary schools to improve the quality of education. As a result, students obtained better grades which gave them the opportunity to continue onto high/secondary schools, tertiary schools and get employed.
