BSP Life PNG meets school’s critical need
Students of Holy Rosary Primary School, at 6 Mile, NCD commenced the 2024 academic year on a high note today, commencing classes with access to a refurbished ablution block, thanks to BSP Life PNG Limited.
Through BSP’s Community Project, BSP Life PNG – the life insurance arm of the business refurbished the school’s ablution block while the students were away on 2023 end of year break. Prior to this, all students were accessing the girls’ ablution block which highlights the urgent need for improvement.
Today, Monday 29th January, 2023, BSP Life PNG Country Manager, Nilson Singh and his BSP Life PNG team handed back the completed project to the school as they commence their 2024 classes.
“It is with immense gratitude and pride that I stand before you today. At BSP Life, we recognize the transformative power of education. We believe that every child deserves access to a safe learning environment, and it is our responsibility as corporate citizens to support initiatives that promote this cause,” Mr Singh said.
“This (BSP 2023 Community) project is not only about meeting a critical need but also reflects BSP’s core values. Through our partnership with Holy Rosary Primary School, we demonstrate our unwavering commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of those we serve,” He added.
BSP Community Projects is undertaken annually nationwide by our Branches, Strategic Business Units (SBUs), and Subsidiary Branches, and are a testament to BSP’ commitment to giving back to the community.
“Focused on Education, Health, Sports, Environment, and other community initiatives, these projects embody our values of compassion, integrity, and community engagement,” Concluded Singh.
The teachers and students of Holy Rosary Primary School were thankful to BSP Life for the assistance.
“The ablution block was one of our critical needs. We were to bring to the attention of the NCD Education board, the state of our facility but BSP came to our assistance. It’s a huge relief for the school. Male students can now have access to their own toilets instead of using the girl’s toilets. Teachers also have access to their own toilets. This facility will go a long way for our 1,700 plus students,” said Ms Gethrude Bade, Headmistress of Holy Rosary Primary School.
