Relevant, high quality, sustainable, & focused education 

According to the UNDP, Papua New Guinea (PNG) currently ranks 156 out of 187 countries on the Human Development Index (HDI). In a population of 8.4 million, only 75 percent of children are technically able to attend school and the literacy rate among adults hovers at a mere 50 percent.

Not only that, but according to a Human Rights Watch World Report, approximetly 70 percent of PNG women and girls experience rape or assault in their lifetime, making PNG is one of the most dangerous places in the world to be a woman or girl. The long treks just to reach a school are extremely dangerous. In a region with no easy access to high schools, male and femle students alike must walk up to a week to attend school and live with a different cultural tribal group.

That’s why World Hope International is partnering with the Stirctland Bosavi Foundation to provide a locally-based highschool that is uniquely attentive to local needs and traditional culture. The school will empower youth through access to education and resources and inspire and encourage them to turn around and make a positive contribution back to their community and society.
