Partners and supporters
The Australian aid program provides $3 million of funding over three years for the Case Management Centre (as announced by Foreign Minister Julie Bishop in February 2014). The funding is part of the Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development initiative.
Mundango Abroad is a philanthropic fund focusing its support on PNG. In 2015, and again in 2016, the foundation provided us with a generous $40,000 AU grant.
The Harold Mitchell Foundation funds programs in health, education and the arts that make a difference in Australia and our region. It supported Femili PNG through a direct grant of $10,000 in 2015, and again in 2016.
Zenag Chicken is a 100% PNG owned poultry company. Zenag kindly donates a box of 108 fresh eggs every two weeks for our clients staying in local safe houses—a huge help, as many clients have no way of supporting themselves or purchasing essentials while living in emergency accommodation.
Colgate Palmolive supported our recent Family Day, and donates toiletries for our clients.
The Australian Government Solicitor provides pro bono legal advice.
Oxfam is the implementing partner for Femili PNG’s case management centre in Lae, providing technical and financial management support. We are a proud participant in Oxfam PNG’s Eliminating Violence Against Women program. Oxfam transfers project funds to us from the Australian aid program. It also provides us with funding to purchase business start-up kits for clients who are being relocated to live in a safer location.
The Development Policy Centre and the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health at The Australian National University provide pro-bono institutional support for the case management centre and are responsible for monitoring and evaluation and related research.
Lae operational partners. We have entered formal partnerships with the Lae District Court, the Division of Community Development in the Morobe Provincial Government, the Lae Provincial Police and the Salvation Army Safe House. You can read more about our Lae partnerships here, here and here.
