A funding agreement between PNGSDP director Donald Manoa and Richard Rabiafi, the general-secretary of the Anglican church, was signed last Saturday in Lae, Morobe province.
Mr Rabiafi thanked PNGSDP for the grant.
“This is what I believed will create change in the community, the benefits of PNGSDP going to the community.”
He encouraged the beneficiaries of the project not to take for granted this funding support but to make good use of the opportunity.
Mr Manoa said PNGSDP was pleased to be working with many churches that have a track record of serving remote communities.
“We are always happy and willing to fund mission organisations that do their best to serve the rural communities.
“One of our main aim at PNGSDP is to assist rural communities to have access to economic income,” he said.
“This is the third assistance support to the Anglican church.”
