BOUGAINVILLE students of the Divine Word University will conduct social and political awareness for the people in Bougainville.
Bougainville House of Representatives speaker Andrew Miriki said funding from the Bougainville Youth Foundation was made available after the students presented a proposal
on their intentions to conduct awareness.
“Local business houses, schools and individuals had also assisted with funds that would go towards the students’ transport, meals and accommodation needed during the
exercise,” Miriki said.
He said issues they would focus on included law and order, autonomy arrangement, HIV/AIDS and briefings on courses studied at DWU.
Miriki said the awareness exercise began this week with students from South Bougainville carrying out awareness at Buin secondary, Tonu and Bana high schools.
“Likewise, the teams of North and Central Bougainville will conduct their awareness as per their schedules. Their target population is high school and secondary school students,” Miriki said.
