Water PNG is bringing all 6 universities together in Lae next week for the National University Debate as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations.
And with the aim of educating Papua New Guineans on the importance of good water and proper sanitation, the European Union in partnership, with the Department of National Monitoring and planning,under the National Authorizing Office Support Unit made a generous contribution of K30, 000 which was presented to Water PNG yesterday to support the event.
Upon presenting the K30, 000 cheque to Water PNG, National Authorizing Officer Support Unit Program Director, Roger Kara noted that it is always a challenge for entities like Water PNG to provide urban water and sanitation services and the commemorative activities this year will hopefully encourage more support from all stakeholders.
Being the main topic of the Intervarsity debate in Lae, “safe water and sanitation in PNG’ is also a key development agenda for the government, and a course the European Union supports.
While thanking European Union and the Department of National Planning and Monitoring, Water PNG’s Chief Corporate Officer Imbu Palya emphasized that clean water and sanitation is of paramount importance for every individual.
The Intervarsity debate will reach a vast number of people as it will be broadcasted on the 9th to the 11th this month.
