LUFA MP Jeffery Kuave has set aside K1 million to pay for school fees for Lufa students attending various tertiary institutions in PNG.
The funds will be derived from the K10 million Lufa district services improvement programme.
The Eastern Highlands MP said one of his priorities was human resource development, with the aim to provide the district with an educated population in the near future.
He said development and services would flow into Lufa if the people were educated and accepted changes to improve their standard of living.
Kuave said that improved infrastructure would enable better access and delivery of education and health services to the people in the district.
He added that parents and students who submitted requests to his office for school fee assistance should expect payments made into their respective institutions by the end of this month.
A Lufa district administration official confirmed that they were processing school fees applications for tertiary students.
Meanwhile, Kuave fulfilled one of his infrastructure development priorities when he delivered a new excavator to the district last weekend.
Lufa district administrator Wesley Loko said the machinery will be used to open up access roads in the district as part of the MP’s plans to upgrade and maintain roads that had deteriorated over the years.
“The people of Lufa will take ownership of equipment such as the excavator and utilise them to the fullest to improve their livelihood,” Loko said.
