The Wildlife settlement area outside of Port Moresby have a collective voice through an association to receive basic government services.
The Wildlife Border Association Inc., will be a platform for people to access government services like water supply systems, electricity access and education.
Yesterday, local MP, Labie Amaiu was present in the area to launch the association.
Dancers from the area comprised of children and teachers from the Glynn’s Elementary School, Erave dancers from Southern Highlands, and those from Enga Province led the procession.
The wildlife settlement area was a state portion first settled by people from different provinces in the Highlands Region, who have since developed the land over the years.
It is situated on the border of the two electorates of Moresby Northeast, and Moresby Northwest.
This area hosts a large population and like many settlements in the city, education, water supply, and electricity is a concern for them.
Following the launching, Mr. Amaiu committed K60,000 to resurvey the land area to identify which boundary they come under so that services will be delivered.
He presented a vehicle, and committed K20,000 to Glynn’s Elementary School and K10,000 to a church through district grants.
