Indigenous Organisations


We walk alongside local organisations and social groups to help them reach their visions.  We believe that investing in helping social groups become more organised and equipped to achieve their goals is vitally important for the sustainability of change.  Capacity building, with the aim of helping local organisations and community groups be more effective and transparent, as well as increasing the scope and depth of their impact, has been the core of Papua Partners work since it was founded in 2006.

“Organisations Matter. They make it possible for us to pool the strengths we have as individual human beings to achieve things that we could not do alone. They enable us ot collectively mobilise our individual powers to face our human challenges with greater possibility”
