About Me: 

I am 32 years of age, I have a Masters Degree from Australia in Agriculture Studies from the University of Queensland, I also have a Post Graduate Diploma in Agriculture Extension and a Bachelors Degree of Science in Agriculture.

I am working with an NGO in PNG, funded by the New Zealand Government Aid, based in Lae, Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea.

I coordinate the Gender Programme for this NGO Project and is very challenging especially in a male dominated culture, but nontheless people are gradually changing and surely I am optimistic, development will take its course one fine day in this nation with sensitized population of both male and females, knowing the clear cut issues of gender equality.

I look forward to joining this new group and will surely contribute where possible as I believe in networking as this is the only way we can move forward and develop.

Thank you,

Carolyn
