Papua New Guinea is at a pivotal juncture in its history. As a developing country, change is constant and rapid. We believe, as the children and schools in Papua New Guinea believe, that the most important element of being able to keep up with change is education. As one high school girl said to us, “we value our education. Because most people never have the chance to learn, we feel blessed, and work very hard to continue.” To support motivated students like her, volunteers will work as teachers
In addition to teaching English, we envision and will work to foster a progressive project where volunteers are empowered by the organization to listen and discover needs in their communities, and in turn, empower these communities to meet them.
The project will educate rural Papua New Guineans, allowing them to access higher education, find employment, and act as community leaders.
This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
