The AFLPNG Development and Tribal Foundation have signed a memorandum of understanding on the way forward to engage, educate and empower the youths.
A MoU signed by AFLPNG development chairman Ekonia Peni and PNG Tribal Foundation founder Gary Bustin on June 17, sets out expectations and responsibilities between both parties to further the benefit of the people of PNG through the senisim pasin campaign.
The MOU will strengthen and extend the services that these organisations are involved in and together they make a great team.
The expectations and responsibilities of each party under their MOU are;
l Screening and gender base violence (gbv), community screenings, branding, media,
l Spokespersons and commercials, intellectual property, effective date and termination, and,
l Additional opportunities and general.
The MOU made effective on June 17, 2018, will continue for one year.
“The Tribal Foundation is pleased to work with AFLPNG to bring the positive message of the senisim pasin campaign to the youth who participate in AFLPNG’s programs,” Bustin who is also president of the PNG Tribal Foundation, said.
“AFLPNG brings great value to the country through their programs and it makes good sense for us to work together to bring about positive change.”
Based on the success in PNG, the AFLPNG development will assist Tribal Foundation through appropriate introductions so that the foundation may pursue implementing the program in other Pacific Islands, AFL-Queensland and possibly the entire AFL national program in Australia.
The two organisations believe that together their efforts in bringing about positive change will have a significant lasting impact on our youth due to the criteria of this momentous MOU.
“AFLPNG development is excited to form a partnership which will provide a platform for change in PNG. AFLPNG development values all the strong PNG women within its programs and is very pleased to join forces with the PNG Tribal Foundation,” Peni said.
The Tribal Foundation is a non-profit foundation and non-government organisation (NGO) that was founded in 2009 with offices in the United States, Australia, and Papua New Guinea. Tribal Foundation has designed a multi-year campaign centered around combating GBV, sorcery accusation based violence (SABV) and ultimately how women in PNG are valued.
