No Roads Foundation's primary work has been to inject health and educational professionals into remote areas of PNG to support local health care workers and teachers, and where required, provide infrastructure and resources to ensure we are building capacity and not replacing it.
All of our projects have one main objective. To work in a spirit of collaboration and undertake projects in remote areas that improve the lives of disadvantaged people by building community capacity.
Trevor Warren, Founder of A-Z Charity, has recently joined NREFA in Myanmar to scope out some projects that may be supported and funded in the future including;
Upgrading the current antiquated hydro power statio.
Installing solar panels to enable some of the villages access to power
Building a Community Primary school at a location to be decided by the Village Elders
Our development and training of Village Health Volunteers (VHVs) and Village Birth Assistants (VBAs) has been a huge success in the Tufi District with many of the volunteers travelling to Tufi on a regular basis to work and train in the Tufi Health Center. The problems is that those from outlying villages have to paddle for many hours to get there and when the arrive, the have nowhere to stay. This is all about to change as The Tufi District VHV/VBA Transit House is now completed.
The house was constructed by NRE Foundation to enable our local team to have a safe place to stay when they travel from their villages to volunteer & train at the Tufi Health Centre.
What an incredible experience for our healthcare workers who were in Buna for the opening of a new classroom and health care centre. This has been a big project of the No Roads Foundation and to see them opened and functional is something we are so proud of. Thank you to everyone who has been involved in making this a reality! You are changing the lives of the people of Papua New Guinea!
