Guide to Volunteering in Papua New Guinea
Some international charities and volunteer organisations have been working on the ground in Papua New Guinea for over 50 years with the aim of improve the infrastructure, educational / healthcare facilities and living standards for local people.
The capital city Port Moresby is where most operations are based but you will usually work in outreach teams going out to rural villages and towns to offer assistance. Some projects are based in the Morobe Province and directed by local NGO's which work to provide and maintain sustainable communities. Projects can vary depending on local requirements.
These projects operate in remote regions where the hospitality from those we assist ensures that you know your assistance is the future for these communities. A key element to programs is to provide the basic tools in both construction and education for these indigenous communities. On teaching jobs you will get to live with local families usually, in pairs but overseen by staff.
Due to the simplistic nature of the schools we will help you develop teaching programs which you will tailor-make and provide for the children at the communities request.
