Kina Bank in partnership with Project Yumi over the weekend saw the second cohort of students
undergo their first training seminar for this year. The training is aimed at students in Grades 10, 11
and 12, with Kina Bank looking to extend this program throughout secondary schools in Port
Moresby later this year.
Kina Bank CEO, Greg Pawson said, “Project Wok is part of Kina Bank’s strategy to help build the
workforce of the future. Youth unemployment is a major social issue facing Papua New Guinea and
at Kina Bank we want to address this. We believe it’s our social responsibility to give back to the
communities we serve and help PNG grow.
“Project Wok is a great opportunity for students and it will help them create success
futures. Through this program, we want to help prepare them for the workforce by providing training
and the chance to get an overview of the Work Industry,” said Mr Pawson.
Project Yumi President Mrs Renee Mero, thanked Kina Bank for partnering with Project Yumi
Incorporation to help tackle the issue of growing youth unemployment.
Project Yumi is a not-for-profit PNG charity run by a team of dedicated volunteers. The charity’s
mission is to enrich the lives of Papua New Guineans by providing valuable education and health
resources to communities throughout the country.
