We are happy to share with you another GREAT YEAR OF SUCCESS for two of our education projects in Pujehun; the Accelerated Education Project (AEP) and Kimi riverine education project also known as Tobells.

For 2020, the National Primary School Examinations (NPSE) pass rates are 91% for Kimi project and 88% for AEP. This is incredible considering the challenges children in these remote communities faced when COVID-19 interrupted their school year and learning.
