Most of you know who Dolly Parton is. The singer. Well did you know that last year a programme she started gave nearly 2 million books to 215,000 kids?
Our politicians don't even think about giving books to our kids. They give us empty classrooms instead!
And to think that someone like Dolly Parton doesn't wait for the government to do this or that. She had the money, she used her money to start a programme instead of just giving it to her family. As a result she helps an entire nation.
Why doesn't Julius Chan start a programme to give books to kids throughout PNG?
Why doesn't Pais Wingti use his wealth to pay for training materials that are sold at low cost (just to make sure those who uses it will be serious about it) in different village based simple trades?
