Normal, Papua


TWO hundred thousand kina in project support grants was given to three private institutions in the National Capital District by Governor Powes Parkop.
The money was part of the K1 million provincial support grants which the governor said was important to support existing programmes by schools and other agencies providing service delivery roles and in line with public private partnership call by the government.
Mr Parkop distributed the cheques at the Don Bosco Technological Institute (DBTI) along the Taurama Road.
The three institutions were DBTI (K50,000), PNG Rehabilitation Centre at Hohola (K100,000) and the Lahara Play School at Boroko (K50,000).
Mr Parkop said Lahara Play school received only K30,000 with the remaining K20,000 to be paid by the commission at a later date.
He said the NCD vision was to be the model province in all aspects of society starting from leadership levels for other centres to learn from.
He commended DBTI for being a premier institution, adding that the Catholic institution was contributing so much in terms of providing quality education training for young people.
Meanwhile, the recipients commended the governor for his support and said the grants would go along way in supporting the initiatives by the NCDC to ensure it realised its vision and the rest of the country to follow suit.
