Meet the Executives of Manus Professionals for Community Development Inc. (MP4CD)
It takes time, commitment, sweat, determination and lots of passion and drive to keep a voluntary establishment such as MP4CD moving – and though things may seem on the outside to be moving at snail’s pace — there is a lot taking place, silently within the group and its network to achieve its targets, projects and vision.
One may be wondering how come an all-female crew? Well…sometimes things just end up that way.
There is also a great team that work together with the Executives, doing what they can, most – using their own resources to accomplish little tasks that are required to be done.
The project which has been on-going and has been gaining great momentum and support is the Donate-A-Book Project. Which started of as that, and now has transformed to becoming the Information Resource Centre Project.
Led by Ms Dorcas Sevua and her small, faithful team have collected over 3,000 books donated by Manusians within Papua New Guinea and abroad. With positive support and networking, The Buk bilong Pikinini have now come on board and will be setting up their library facility in Lorengau, Manus Province.
And if you are still wondering if there are any men in the group – there are
This is the 3rd year since MP4CD has been established and has gained identity and momentum amongst the people of Manus. The main discussion forum being the Manus Google Group e-Mailing Discussion List which now has over 1000+ subscribers to the list.
Updates from the Committee on the progress of MP4CD can also be seen through these sites.
