ICTSI continues to help improve the lives of local communities at its Papua New Guinea operation as part of its drive to work towards corporate responsibility.

The International Terminal (MIT) recently donated school equipment to the Baruni Primary School in the Motu-Koitabu village in Port Moresby made possible through a memorandum of agreement with the Baruni Community Development Association (Bacoda).

“More than helping improve the ports infrastructure in countries where we operate, ICTSI continues to touch on providing greater opportunities for marginalized and vulnerable sectors in the society, children in particular,” said Christian R. Gonzalez, ICTSI Global Corporate and Asia Pacific Head.

“Our support to the Baruni primary school, a vital facility within the immediate hinterlands of our Motukea concession, marks our continuing emphasis on education as a powerful agent in shaping the course of the community and the country,”

Community wellbeing

Together with its corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm ICTSI Foundation, the port operator donated 150 student desks, six teacher desks and 300 chairs for elementary school students.

Like many other schools in dire need of schooling materials and facilities, the government run Baruni Primary School is no exemption — with students forced to sit on the floor in dusty conditions.

ICTSI has other plans currently in the pipeline to support Motukea’s sustainable development, including a water supply project for the Baruni community.

The company also recently signed an agreement with the Noho-Magae organisation, which represents the Baruni and Tatana communities that would allow the latter to become shareholders of the MIT.

The ICTSI Foundation is also lending technical and logistics support for the implementation of various high-impact programs and projects in PNG.
