Visit to the Yambo Elementary and Junior Schools

2017

On a recent Rotary trip to the Yambo elementary and Junior schools by a number of members with a twofold purpose of inspecting the results of the combined work done with the community of the school and a meaningful discussion on the way forward in our support of the school. The work completed has been the supply of desks and the materials for the creation of floors for the various classrooms. The work on the floors had been done to a high standard and should enable them to be operated for a fair number of years and the school children were enjoying the 25 desks and 2 two teacher tables that had been provided. The rotary members then sat down with the school governors, the school principal and teachers to discuss what future assistance was required. The members were very keen to fund a joint initiative with the parents for the supply of text books and teaching materials for the staff to enable the standard of education to the children to be improved. The members are still very puzzled by the Educations Departments lack of support (no funds had been received) in terms of an operating budget. The hospitality of the community was a greatly appreciated and as always exceeded most of our expectations.

Boana Health Centre drop-off March 2014 (16/3/14)

2017

Members of the Rotary Club of Lae Huon Gulf deliver much needed medical supplies and books to the Boana Health Centre.

In terms of time and distance, another big adventure came off on Sunday. Yes, it’s the sequel you’ve been waiting for… RETURN TO BOANA starring none other than the Rotary Club of Lae Huon Gulf.

Nestled high in the mountains of Morobe, Boana is a genuinely rural provincial health and administration centre.It took our two vehicles an hour and a half to travel the 25 km from where the road turns off the Highlands Highway. That’s averaging a whopping 16 km/h.

Thanks to the medical supplies (disposable latex gloves, surgical masks & birthing kits) and library books in the back, I made it all the way up there in 2 wheel drive. Steep, narrow, rocky, rutted roads zigzagged up a couple of mountain ranges and down the other side. Invariably, there was a white-water river at the bottom and more than a few friendly faces along the way.

Hope you enjoy the photos.
