Our CEO Daisy Plana was recently a guest speaker at the PNG US Embassy Women’s Forum. Speaking on a panel focused on innovative solutions to gendered based violence, Daisy explained the role and importance of Femili PNG’s Case Management Centre to an audience of hundreds of women (and some men) leaders from all corners of PNG.
Outside the main conference room, Femili PNG/Oxfam Stakeholder Engagement Adviser Sarah James and her colleague Ian Lapu spent the day manning a joint Femili PNG/ Oxfam booth. Many in-depth discussions on the CMC model and work were had. CEO Daisy even joined the booth team for a brief period as well to share her expertise and answer questions.
The booth received a lot of attention from some of PNG’s most influential gender leaders from policewomen to researchers to government representatives, as well as representatives from Oxfam’s other partner organisations who were curious about the work of Oxfam’s newest gender program partner. Approximately one hundred participants expressed interest in Femili PNG and Oxfam’s work and were enthusiastic to receive updates on its future progress.
Overall the day was a big success for Femili PNG our team on the ground in PNG.
