Anglicare PNG’s Quarterly Bulletin
Anglicare PNG is the community development arm of the Anglican Church of PNG (ACPNG). It has 5 branches located in 3 Anglican Dioceses with officers attached to the other 2 Dioceses. ABM has partnered with Anglicare for over 10 years and is one aspect of our larger partnership with ACPNG. Anglicare runs a range of programs from adult literacy, gender awareness and child protection to HIV/STI prevention, testing and treatment, psychosocial support for people living with HIV and water and sanitation for health (WASH) in primary schools. Anglicare is responsible for implementing the DFAT funded PNG Church Partnership Program (CPP) in partnership with ABM and the 6 other churches involved in the PNG CPP. ABM currently supports Anglicare’s adult literacy program and the Diocesan based officers who run the HIV prevention and gender programs. These programs teach women and men to read and write, improve the livelihoods of rural communities by teaching important life-skills and promote positive relationships between women and men and raise awareness of the rights of women, children and people living with HIV.
