Lack of resources

​Remote island lacks students’ materials

The island, located off the western end of mainland Manus, is isolated and logistics remain a challenge due to the high cost of fuel.

It costs K23 per gallon of zoom in Lorengau, and to get to Bipi, around 10-15 gallon is needed to travel one way.

Fuel on the island costs between K37-K40 per gallon, which makes travelling to Lorengau a very expensive exercise for the islanders.

But for students there, this is home.
