We are happy to welcome the 15 new staff who have begun training for our Port Moresby programs, where Femili PNG will be operating a new Case Management Centre as part of the Bel Isi PNG initiative.
The Bel Isi PNG (“Peaceful PNG” in Pidgin) galvanises leaders to change the attitudes of staff towards Family and Sexual Violence (FSV) and raise awareness on the importance of addressing the issue both in companies and in the broader community. It brings together the private sector, community-based organisations, the National Capital District Commission and the governments of Australia and Papua New Guinea.
Bel Isi PNG combines direct service delivery (by Femili PNG) and support to businesses (through the PNG Business Coalition for Women and Oil Search Foundation) to access and implement improved FSV policies, procedures and training. The overall grant is managed by the Oil Search Foundation.
Bel Isi PNG is working with NCDC and a range of other service providers to improve all support services in Port Moresby for survivors of FSV.
