“For a small community, BSP has surprised the leaders and family members, as this is a big project and it was well done,” School Chairman John Iamau
In 2016, BSP will deliver 45 community projects throughout Papua New Guinea, worth over K1.1 million.
BSP’s Wabag branch has the privilege of delivering the bank’s first of 44 projects for 2016; a renovated classroom and a new water tank for students at Sangurup Elementary School.
School Chairman John Iamau, expressed his gratitude and added that he was surprised to see the job completed on time; thanks to the staff contribution and support.
He added that the school board and staff were pleased that BSP chose their school. “We have a new water tank, and this keeps our students within the school ground. They don’t need to go to the creeks to fetch drinking water.”
More importantly, with the renovated classroom, our students are comfortable and enjoy the learning environment provided; for this, we thank the Staff for their initiative, time and effort.
BSP staff took on a 4 week challenge, volunteered time over the weekends and a few hours during weekdays to work on the project. They assisted in fitting V-Crimp on the Wall, assembling the PVC pipes and gutters, fitting plywood for corridors and ceilings, cementing and aligning the footpaths, installation of window frames and painting the classroom. A local building contractor supervised the project and the school’s handymen help out too.
“For a small community, BSP has surprised the leaders and family members, as this is a big project and it was well done,” Iamau added,
Wabag Branch Manager Theresa Pilamp when handing over the project said it is part of the bank’s culture to give back to the communities in which it operates.
“BSP takes its responsibility as being a leader seriously and this is shown in its contributions back to the community. BSP usually focus on health, education and sports,” she said.
In 2015, BSP delivered 39 community projects nationwide.
