The Koiari landowners of the Sirinumu Dam in Central province are fighting illegal activities on their land, such as land grabbing through business.

Sirinumu Development Company or SIDCO is one landowner company working in PNG to bring back services to the impacted and affected communities.

Today, SIDCO commissioned their assets, worth K20 million under its community services delivery program.

With the support of PNG Power Limited, who operates the Sirinumu Dam, SIDCO bought six speedboats, two trucks, and a backhoe.

The boats and the trucks will be strictly used for school runs only, while the machine will be for road maintenance to their feeder roads.

A building, located at 15 Mile outside of Port Moresby was also commissioned today to create a viable business centre.

Meanwhile, PNG Power Limited Acting CEO, John Yanis, attended the event, however, challenged them to invest.

SIDCO is also helping its people to venture into small and medium enterprise activities.

Today, individuals and church groups were presented K20,000 each.

This is one of the success stories of SIDCO and its Koiari people of the Sirinumu Dam.
