EDUCATION does not stop when one fails an examination or gets old, an official says.
PNG Life Education Institute principal director Rai Gini said education only ended when one died.
Gini said many youths on the streets either dropped out of school or had financial problems, which forced them out of the education system.
“We, at the PNG Life Institute, have a place for you if you think that you are at the brick wall and there’s no way for you to complete your education,” he said.
“Since its inception in 2011, we have set a target to graduate and to establish job attachments for a minimum of 1,000 students. To date after three years, we have confidently reached over 900 in 2013.
“Students who cannot afford their education or who had been given up by their parents have enrolled at this institution and have graduated with certificate in basic office administration and business.“90% of the students who enroll at the institution have full-time jobs – a great achievement for the school.”
Rai said he was privileged to take the youths off the streets of Port Moresby and give them a chance to complete their education.
He thanked the parents who had helped him and NCD Governor Powes Parkop for offering scholarships for them.
The institute is located in Hohola inside the United Church premises.
Enrolments for 2014 are now open.
