In this episode:
We bring you CARE PNG & RURAL Communities! CARE has worked in Papua New Guinea (PNG) since 1989, and, since the establishment of a CARE office in Goroka in 2006,
they have improved the quality of life of more than 13,000 people in 20 villages by addressing the challenges identified and prioritised by the communities themselves. CARE also supports remote and disadvantaged areas with improved agricultural practices, water supply, education, HIV prevention and care, disaster risk management and capacity building. Olsem Wanem brings you Care PNG’s Integrated Development Project in Obura Wonenara in the Eastern Highlands.
The Integrated Community Development Project’s approach centres around building an enabling environment for rural service delivery by facilitating Ward Development Planning capacity and awareness, brokering linkages between government, communities and local organization, and modelling ways to support and deliver services and community development activities as identified in Ward Plans.
