ICTSI South Pacific supports UNICEF’s back-to-school program

ICTSI South Pacific supported the recent back-to-school program of UNICEF Papua New Guinea, facilitating the quick release of four containers filled with school kits.

The kits, which included backpacks, books, stationeries, pens, and solar radios, were distributed to 20,000 primary, elementary, and secondary students from select schools in the country’s Western, Sandaun, Morobe, and Madang provinces in preparation for the resumption of classes last 19 July.

UNICEF’s back-to-school program is also supported by the Australian Government and the Global Partnership for Education under PNG’s education emergency response and recovery plan.
