Church Partnership Program

AID works in partnership with Anglicare PNG and the Anglican Church as part of the Church Partnership Program. The Church Partnership Program brings together seven denominations and their Australian NGO partners to work together to improve service delivery and build resilience in rural communities, with support from the Australian Government.

The Anglican Church of PNG and Anglicare (the Church’s social and development arm) are focused on the areas of adult literacy, health, disaster risk reduction, gender equality, and child protection. Key objectives include:

  • improve the quality and standard of literacy programs, leading to increased opportunities for transition to formal education and employment
  • promote healthy lifestyle messaging through schools and partner with the National Department of Health in supporting communities to self-assess healthy practices
  • increase capacity and integration of gender equality and social inclusion through all church programs through gender equality theology and youth mentorship
  • increase community awareness of potential disasters and work towards resilient and ready communities

The Church Partnership Program is supported by the Australian Government through the Papua New Guinea–Australia Partnership. To donate to a similar project, please see PNG Adult Literacy.
