Ministry for Women and Children - PNG

Young Women’s Hostel and Child Care Facility in Port Moresby, PNG: 

MSC sisters in Papua New Guinea are in the final stages of preparing to open a newly constructed Centre which will provide safe housing for young women who come to Port Moresby for studies or work and a Day Care Facility for young children. This project was developed in response to the needs and priorities identified in the National Pastoral Plan of the Bishops in PNG and Solomon Islands developed at the General Assembly of the Church of PNG in 2004.  It states that “…. as Church we are committed  to empowering  people  towards  greater  self-reliance, ensuring  justice in employment conditions and opportunities and ensuring respect for the rights of all but especially women and children.”
