Personal passion is the power to solve poverty, unemployment and crime, says the director for Human Development Institute, Samuel Tam.
Tam said this to more than 60 agriculture business-minded women and men from Hope worldwide PNG (HWPNG) in Port Moresby yesterday.
He said all skills needed in looking after poultry, pig, small-scale faming and so forth depends on the power of the mind.
“The moment your mind is weak, production becomes inconsistent and business fails,” he said.
The seminar was hosted by Hope to teach its members business ideas and skills like writing business letters, minute-taking, agenda-setting and communicating with customers.
HWPNG is a faith based non-government organisation that was founded in 1994.
HWPNG is affiliated with Hope worldwide Australia, Hope worldwide Ltd in the USA and has relationships with Hope worldwide organisations in over 80 other countries.
It has the mission to serve poor people in PNG through health, education, agriculture and social programmes.
HWPNG project director Josephine Kaola said business skills were provided to support farming and businesses.
Kaola said incentives were given to members who wanted to start business somewhere.
