About Me: 

I believe that to create a better tomorrow, it is important to ensure that children's basic rights and needs are provided and that they are well taken care of. They recieve health care and education so that one day they can lead our country.

I am 31 years old and have seen alot of young children in my country who are on the streets fending for themselves because they come from a family who can't afford to provide decent meal for them nor put them through school. Many loose hope and turn to petty crimes and eventually end up in prision.

I come from a province where many parents are subsitance farmers and they find it difficult to send their children to High Institutions, seeing many bright children's dream being shettered, I am now working on a charity foundation whose aim is to support such young children gain the education they deserve to later develop my province. It is also to support local health centres to provide basic health service to ensure women and children are given the health service they deserve. This foundation will be launched in September 2011 and so far I have received alot of good response from people who come from my province who are keen to back this foundation.

My Passions: 
Helping the unfortunate realise their potential
My Challenges: 
Lack confidence, skill to put together proposal to acquire assistance
My Vision for the Future: 
Well educated young people to take leadership of our country to bring better services to the less fortunate and for equal opportunity.
My Areas of Expertise: 
Journalist by profession
My Languages: 
English, Tok Pisin
