Knowledge Adventure Club
Adventure of a life time start here!
Who are we?
The club was started by a group of PNG citizens with the same ambition “generously promote knowledge through reading'.
The team planned to visit remote site s in PNG targeting the unfortunate communities that miss out on the basic government services.
Whilst exploring our blessed homeland we decided not to only receive the experience but to give back to the community we visit. We aim to guide tomorrow’s generation to learn the importance of knowledge through reading.
• Our Short term goal is to start building-up one library a time throughout PNG.
• Our long term goal is to build-up a network of libraries and to develop the first pouching library system through the network of libraries in PNG.
• We aim to also promote sister Clubs in the resource sector and any other sectors within in PNG with the same goal and vision governed by the club constitution.
Knowledge Adventure Club

Partnership with the Papua New Guinea National Library and Archives:
We have commenced establishing communication with the National Library to seek technical assistance and advice in assisting us identify and reach the communities and schools that are in need of reading material. We hope to further strengthen this partnership and engage in projects that are aligned with the National Libraries directives and the PNG government’s national goals in service delivery in regards to remote areas.
We would like to form partnership to any group or individual with the same desire as the Knowledge Adventure Club “Reaching out to remote communities/schools that miss out essential services and promote knowledge through reading.
