Days for girls NBPOL Poliamba

Our Days for Girls programme in Poliamba periodically hosts programmes aimed at educating and supporting young women in the New Ireland Province with information and advice on hygiene, health, and education. We engage youth and communities in various areas through regular workshops to enhance social and personal development skills. The project was instrumental in establishing the Days for Girls Enterprise: a socioeconomic programme for local girls and women in Kavieng. More than 20 women have been trained in basic sewing skills and use of the Days for Girls kits. We regularly donate Days for Girls kits to community schools, health centres and churches in and around Kavieng, and publish regular newsletters highlighting our achievements. In 2018 and 2019, we donated a total of 54 kits and 682 books, and 56 kits and 682 books, respectively.
