Femili PNG’s Annual Report for 2016-17 is now available, covering our third year of operations in Lae.

- Assisting 479 new clients (including 387 women) and their families to effectively access FSV services and assistance.
- Conducting 4,100 individual client support consultations.
- Strengthened our case management operations in Lae with the appointment of a Case Work Manager and an international technical expert.
- Hosted a successful speaking tour of Lae and Port Moresby by 2015 Australian of the Year, Rosie Batty.
- Entered into MOUs with three national organisations including Trukai Industries Ltd, the PNG Business Coalition for Women (BCFW) and the Lutheran Church.
- Expanded our operations to Hela Province through a partnership with the Oil Search Foundation.
