February dedicated to Education of Children
Education of children in the Kogeva and Sabama communities of Port Moresby, was the prime focus throughout the entire month of February, for the Daughters of Mary Immaculate.
Sr Catherine DMI, Country Director for DMI Mission in PNG, said on 11th February, they carried out a data collection exercise for fifty children driven toward enrolling them in three Morning Study Centres run by the DMI. The centres are supported by the efforts of voluntary teachers from the neighbouring schools who report to the congregation on the student’s progress.
From 9th and 16th February, she stated the congregation conducted a meeting with women leaders of Kogeva and Sabama, to outline the approaches that would be taken in best assisting children and women in the year 2021.
Sr Catherine said this was mainly done to support parents who were struggling to enrol their children into school, and to provide an opportunity for children to learn and also succeed.
