Jayapura, Jubi – Filep Karma urged a number of church institutions in Papua to pay attention to the education of Papuan children.

Educational institutions should be able to prepare the next generation with better education to face globalization.

Karma stated during the book discussion and writing seminar on Life Stories in the Hall of the College of Theology Walter Post Sentani, Jayapura regency, Papua, on Monday (14/12/2015). “First, the church needs to think about the children’ education institutions,” he said seriously.

He said, many children in Papua are not getting a good education. He cited those imprisoned for criminal cases. In Papua there is no prison for children. Children are punished and sent in an adult prison.

“Secondly, the church must build a rehabilitation institution because dependence on alcohol is very high, “he said.

He added, these children can be used by others to reached their will and it will be a great danger.

Balim Council Secretary Engelbertus Surabut said the government has no attention for native Papuans, so the church must take on the role. The Church is not only preaching, but must be more seriously to build moral education of the Papuans.

“Ora et Labora “ pray and work “must be implemented in Papua. The words of love must be real, if not, the gospel will never be real, “he said. (Mawel Benny/Tina)
