 EXXONMobil has launched a new recipe book to help the Business and Professional Women’s Club (BPW) support young women with scholarship programmes and other activities.

The cook book titled YumiKukim Kaikai features 95 recipes from 15 different countries. 

It was launched last Thursday at the IBBM Enterprise Centre in Kone, National Capital District.

The recipes were submitted by the ExxonMobil community in PNG. 

The proceeds from the sale of the books will go towards helping the club in Port Moresby.

BPW Port Moresby representative Rachael Thompson said the books were selling at K50 per copy. They are sold at the craft market at Ela Beach and through corporate partners of the club. Purchases can also be made through email [email protected] 

PNG LNG project executive Decie Autin said proceeds from the sale of the book would be donated to the women’s club. 

“The money raised will help them support young women with scholarship programmes and other valuable activities. 

“We are very proud of the cookbook, which highlights the diversity of cultures among the ExxonMobil community in Papua New Guinea,” Autin said. 

Club president Susil Nelson said the funds would support a range of women’s initiatives such as mentoring and coaching.

BPW was established in Port Moresby in 1982 and is a local non-governmental organisation.
