Church Partnership Program
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
