Friday, August 18, 2023

BSP Financial Group Ltd (BSP) has come on-board to provide vital funds to support under privileged children with no formal education.

BSP has added its financial clout to become a gold sponsor for the Cry of the Poor (ANCOP) PNG Learning Centre who will lead the ANCOP global walk on Sunday 15th October, 2023.

The Cry of the Poor (ANCOP) PNG Learning Centre - located at Gerehu Stage 7 - runs learning and nourishment programs for under privileged children below the age of 8 years, with no formal early education.

“Through our preschool program, we aim to provide children with a strong foundation upon which to build their future academic and personal success,” Cecille Chuacuco, ANCOP POM Fundraising Chairperson, said.

“Our program includes a comprehensive curriculum, tailored to the needs of young children, that focuses on developing key skills such as literacy, numeracy, and socialization. In addition, we also provide daily nutritious meals to our students, ensuring that they are receiving the sustenance necessary to support their physical and cognitive growth.

“This will our first time engaging with corporate companies in PNG, and we are very grateful that BSP is supporting our foundation’s effort,” she added.

Community and people are among BSP’s core values and take pride in helping underprivileged children not only in Gerehu but from other suburbs in NCD.

“We are more than just a bank,” Amelia Minnopu. BSP Corporate Sponsorship Manager said. “As a responsible corporate organisation we give back in sponsorships, donations, and charity work. In 2022, we invested over K2.4 million in sponsorships, more than K800 thousand in donations and K1.6 million in community projects here in PNG.

“It is our belief that when our communities prosper, our ecosystem thrives, and our customers, stakeholders, shareholders, and businesses remain successful. Our donations reach organisations, charities, community groups and other worthy causes that contribute meaningfully to improving lives. It is our hope that we are able to enrich and empower for the better.
