EXXONMOBIL PNG Ltd (EMPNG), the operator of the PNG LNG Project, has donated 30 laptops to students of Don Bosco Technological Institute (DBTI) in Port Moresby.
The support will give female students the ability to have safe access to computer facilities to help them meet their education goals and improve their learning opportunities, a school official says.
At the presentation, Sister Alice, the directress of the Mary Our Help ladies dormitory of DBTI, thanked EMPNG for the kind donation and encouraged the students to utilise the laptops to boost their learning.
“This support from ExxonMobil is highly appreciated and very timely to help many students that do not have computers,” Sister Alice said.
“Computers are a necessary tool for any student, especially in tertiary level of education to complete their assignments and course work. This support from ExxonMobil will help them immensely with their studies,” she added.
Carolyn Lubang, a second-year machine fitting and maintenance technology student, thanked ExxonMobil for the donation and said that being able to have access to this tool was necessary for daily learning and would help with writing assignments or applications.
Peter Graham, EMPNG managing director, said investing in education was a key priority for the company.
“I’m sure that these laptops will assist these young students with their studies. These days, technology is so important for learning, and we hope that this donation of laptops benefits their grades and studies,” Graham said.
“Access to computers and to the internet opens up a pathway to a vast amount of information that can support their learning.”
DBTI is a Catholic-run tertiary institution aimed at training local teachers for technical and vocational schools and skilled technicians for industries.
It is affiliated to the Divine Word University in Madang and is an accredited training provider by the National Training Council.
