The SMEC Foundation contributed AU$3,231 to the Children’s University of Music and Art for the construction of a new school building. The Children’s University of Music and Art has operated in Papua New Guinea since 2009 and has nearly 200 students. The school provides free education to the Kaugere settlement and surrounding areas in Port Moresby, giving hope to children without access to basic health care and education. Prior to the construction of the new building classes were taught outdoors. A new school building will ensure effective teaching and increase the enrolment numbers.
