Meet Heather, CEO

Businesswoman

Heather Doonan is the CEO of Books 4 PNG Kids and leads, coordinates, and manages the logistics of the entire supply chain from book pickup in Australia to delivery to schools in Papua New Guinea.

 

Heather is an inspirational leader who makes the process work smoothly and delivers extraordinary outcomes.

 

Heather has always endeavoured to help those in need whether in Brisbane where she lives, in New Zealand where many of her family live or in the Pacific Islands whose culture she embraces. This is Heather’s 20-year story about collecting and supplying millions of reused books.

Our Volunteers

Every Friday 8am-4pm at our Salisbury warehouse, an army of volunteers sort, pack, label and load the books onto pallets awaiting dispatch. 

 

Volunteers come from all walks of life. They can be PNG students studying in Brisbane, Australians who have lived in PNG or simply Brisbane locals who see the benefit and want to help.

 

Books 4 PNG Kids is inclusive, empowering and fun. We warmly welcome new volunteers and appreciate any time you can dedicate to our cause.
