Mini expo gives women something to talk about


A mini exposition hosted recently in Wewak brought together women from all over East Sepik to showcase their skills and talent, and network.
The expo had stalls of artefacts, floriculture, and other products. It also featured other events like school debates, traditional singing and modelling. Wewak mayor Charles Malenki said the event allowed women from the six districts to get together, share and learn.
“We also had participants from outside – a group of dancers from West Papua and a women’s rep from Milne Bay,” Malenki said.
East Sepik Council of Women president Sophie Mangai said: “We want to promote this mini expo to educate our women and empower them to become leaders and businesswomen in the society,” she said.
The expo received help from Charles Malenki (K5000), Wewak district development authority (K20,000), South Sea Tuna Corporation (K2000), Leon Hardware (materials and equipment), Christian Book Melanesia (Bibles for prizes), Hardware House, Kapmandu Investment (K1000), National Development Bank (debate prizes) and individuals.
