The connection between yourtown and the Papua New Guinea Lasallian Women of Hope has never been stronger. In March 2020, yourtown Project Dignity made a donation of $1000 to the PNG Lasallian Women of Hope and was converted to PNG Kina in the last few days.
With the consistent support from yourtown, the project was able to assist over 200 students in 2018, 300 in 2019 and has now reached 400 students at the beginning of 2020. They have been able to extend their support to newer sites, including Madang, Bouganville, and Karamui. The funds have meant that the foundation can provide young girls with sanitary pads, underwear, laundry and bathing soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes.The National Coordinator of the Lasallian Family in Hohola, Grace Wrakia, extended her sincere gratitude on behalf of the PNG Lasallian Women of Hope to yourtown. This donation, as well as the many previous donations, has touched the hearts of over 300 girls in Papua New Guinea.
Grace and the PNG Lasallian Women of Hope believe they will be able to reach even more girls, particularly those in the most remote schools where Lasallian Teachers work.
