THE Kuli Technical Vocational Education Training (TVet) in Jiwaka received K140,000 for projects and maintenance of its centre so it can provide better education for the new province.
The money was made available by the Jiwaka Education Task Force through the Jiwaka Transitional Authority (JTA).
The task force is made up of educationist and its aim is to equip all schools with necessary equipment and help make education a top priority.
From the K10 million allocated to JTA by the national government, a fifth was given to the task force for the provision of logistic support to schools in the province.
JTA director and acting administrator Nicholas Kuman presented the cheque to the teachers and staff of Kuli TVet at the school grounds.

They were now working closely to ensure each school was well equipped.
Kuman said as a new province, Jiwaka would need manpower and that came through education
The task force also gave Fatima and Minj TVet K190,000 and Jimi High School K180,000.
Kuli TVet manager Stewart Lupain thanked Kuman and the task force for their support.
