Our idea is to form a strong lobby group to influence the Government for the rights of women and to set legislation and policy that protect women in Papua New Guinea. We also hope to empower women via community mobilization to change cultures that value women as less. I work for & with a few women's groups and organizations in Port Moresby but predominantly in rural villages where they face a spectrum of abuse that is both shocking in range as in composition.

Our simple idea is to provide the very basic general health & self help information for mothers on a calender with healthy local recipes, feel good & encouraging messages using pictures of local women in their every day life making sago, fishing & gardening,chatting, dancing etc. We hope to do this for as many villages in as many provinces in PNG.

Our proposed idea is to rekindle, stimulate and promote useful traditional food production & practices through education and community workshops. We will hand down these skills to the young & instill value of local resources while adopting more effective and modern agricultural methods for productive food security, sustainability and income generation.
