Remote ward to revive school

The National,Friday June 10th, 2016

THE remote Amau ward in the Cloudy Bay local level government in Central will revive its elementary school after more than 15 years.
The school had been serving the ward which included the villages of Amau and More.
Villager Steven Andrew said the school was shut down because of the mismanagement of funds.
They will be supported by the World Bank funded rural service delivery project.
Andrew is one of the community facilitators of the project chosen from various wards in the LLG to oversee the projects. “We undertook two weeks of intensive training on conducting awareness and writing proposals,” he said.
“We went to our respective wards and did awareness on the project by informing people on the purpose and the need for them to participate.”
Andrew said after compiling the ward profile, population data and financial proposal he sent the report to the Project Management Unit which endorsed it.
“In January we had the first delivery of materials for the classroom which is now almost 95 per cent complete.” he said.
