The Anglicans are hosts to the Second Biannual CPP Forum for 2015 in October

The CPP National Coordinator for the Anglican Church Mr. Jeffrey Kaka and his team from Anglicare PNG Inc. in the presence of the Church Partners received the torch from the SDA Church during the Kokopo CPP Forum.

The forum held in Kokopo itself is the 20th since its inception in 2004 and the 21st forum and the second for this year will be held in Kimbe, West New Britain Province here in Papua New Guinea.

ADRA was the hosting organization under the SDA Church and according to the church partners, it attained a successful outcome in fulfillment of the theme “LESSONS LEARNT-Churches Shaping PNG”

The ADRA team really had the participants on their toes during the welcome dinner hosted by the Sonoma Adventists College body. The dinner was one of a kind which had set a high standard that the Church Partners will now have to maintain this high standard.

Anglicare PNG Inc. the Community Development arm of the Anglican Church will spearhead the organizing of the 21st Biannual CPP Forum this year (2015) in Kimbe.

Preparations are underway.

About Anglicare PNG Inc

Anglicare is a National NGO started in Port Moresby and now has establishments in Popondetta, Morobe, Mt. Hagen and Wabag. We also cover nearby provinces like Central and Gulf in our work. The Anglican Diocese of Port Moresby initiated to establish originally called Anglicare StopAIDS PNG (and then changed to Anglicare PNG Inc in 2010 to show the national approach) as a Church response to the growing concern of the rising HIV and AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Papua New Guinea. The concern was not limited to raising awareness, educating, counselling and testing, but to offer care, support, and treatment for the infected and affected due to the high prevalence of stigma and discrimination. Anglicare was established in January 2000 from very humble beginnings by two female expatriates in Port Moresby, Kay Nicol and late Jeannette Southwell, and was incorporated in October of 2002. Anglicare has continued to grow in size due to the securing of Donor funding from a number of organisations over the years and the requests from the communities for services and training in relation to HIV and AIDS. People want to be informed of the changes occurring in their world, but need others to give them accurate information on the things that affect and contribute to the changes. This is where in the past Anglicare had built a reputation of ‘working in the community’ and reaching out to the grass roots people in the isolated areas. The organisation has been instrumental in encouraging more women to participate in decision making and supported them in care development training over the years. The programs and activities have also highlighted many of the gender related issues that women have been dealing with.
